HISTORY     FROM     THE     LANDING     OF    WOLFE     AT 

LOUISBURG    IN    1758    TO    THE    PRESENT    TIME. 




DECEMBER,  1917 







In  a  young  country,  where  the  struggle  for  existence  seems  to  be  only 
too  soon  followed  by  the  struggle  for  the  mighty  dollar,  we  are  but  little 
concerned  with  history. 

History  is  supposed  to  be  the  work  of  the  teachers,  the  professors  in 
the  universities,  the  antiquarians  and  archivists.  And  yet,  how  are  we  to 
understand  ourselves  and  our  position  as  a  nation  unless  there  are  pre- 
served the  evidences  of  our  growth  and  of  the  struggles  of  our  fathers  to 
the  end  that  a  strong  nation  might  be  established?  And  these  evidences 
of  struggle  and  growth,  so  eagerly  sought  after  and  so  carefully  preserved 
by 'the  older  nations  of  the  world,  are  not  revealed  in  books,  but  in  repro- 
ductions of  scenes  of  the  times.  These  prints  tell  a  story,  by  the  side  of 
which  the  printed  word  is  cold  and  dead,  and  to  see  the  faces  of  the  men 
who  accomplished  great  things  for  our  country,  and  to  see  the  pictures  of 
the  houses  in  which  they  lived  and  worked,  and  of  the  villages  and  towns 
as  they  were  in  those  times,  gives  us  a  thrill  of  "ancestor  worship"  which 
a  discovery  in  Debrett  could  never  produce. 

The  Dominion  Government  has  recognized  the  necessity  for  the  con- 
servation and  preservation  of  historical  documents  by  the  establishment  of 
the  Archives  Department,  which  is  doing  a  work  too  little  recognized.  This 
is  a  great  storehouse  of  national  history,  but  it  has  the  disadvantages  of  a 
storehouse  in  that  its  treasures  cannot  be  accessible  to  all. 

Here  and  there  in  our  country  are  persons  who  collect  this  historical 
material  as  an  avocation  or  hobby,  and  among  these  stands  pre-eminently 
Mr.  J.  Ross  Robertson,  whose  interest  in  this  intellectual  pleasure  is  known 
to  collectors  the  world  over.  Mr.  Robertson  believed  that  the  value  of 
such  material  lay,  not  in  the  hoarding  of  it,  the  mere  possession  of  it,  but 
in  allowing  all  those  who  had  similar  interests  to  share  in  the  pleasure  of 
looking  at  and  enjoying  these  illustrations  of  the  age  that  has  gone. 

The  value  in  money  expended  on  this  collection  is  very  considerable, 
as  those  know  who  are  in  the  market  for  such  illustrations  as  are  trea- 
sured in  this  collection.  These  are  exceedingly  hard  to  obtain,  and  there 
are  at  least  one  hundred  important  exhibits  in  this  collection  which  have 
not  been  on  the  London  market  in  complete  form  for  over  twenty  years, 
and  dealers  do  not  know  where  to  look  for  them. 

The  collection  is  impressive  even  to  the  man  who  thinks  in  dollars; 
it  ^interesting  to  those  who  find  in  it  scenes  and  persons  familiar  to  them 
and  recalling  the  early  days  of  Canada;  it  is  illuminating  to  the  student 
of  our  history;  but,  above  all,  it  is  the  national  character  of  the  collection 
that  awakens  the  deepest  emotions — that  here  is  the  history  of  a  young 
nation,  the  background  of  men  and  events  which  have  brought  us  to  this 
critical  period  in  the  world's  history,  and  have  made  us  active  participators 
in  the  solution  of  a  great  world  problem  and  crisis. 

To  the  boy  and  girl  at  school;  to  the  young  man  and  woman  at  college, 
whose  knowledge  of  Canadian  history  is  but  an  acquaintance  with  the  dry 
details  of  a  text-book;  to  the  elderly  man  and  woman,  who  can  remember 
some  of  the  people  and  some  of  the  scenes  depicted;  and  even  to  the  people 
from  other  lands  who  have  adopted  this  country  as  their  home,  and  wish 
to  know  something  of  its  history — to  all  these  the  J.  Ross  Robertson 
Historical  Collection  will  be  a  means  of  education  as  well  as  recreation, 
and  the  name  of  the  donor  will  live  in  everlasting  remembrance  for  this 
practical,  local  and  national  gift  to  the  city  of  Toronto. 

The  history  of  this  collection  is  very  interesting.  In  a  letter  to  the 
Public  Library  Board  in  1910,  Mr.  Robertson  stated  that  for  many  years 
he  had  been  collecting  examples  of  the  history  of  Canada  from  1758  up  to 
the  present  time  as  exhibits  in  pictorial  form,  and  that  he  was  anxious  that 
the  public  should  have  the  benefit  of  it.  He  knew  of  no  more  fitting  place 
than  the  Public  Library,  and  informed  the  Board  that  he  was  willing  to 
instal  this  collection,  and,  eventually,  to  give  to  the  Board  another  collec- 
tion of  Canadian  prints  and  photos  contained  in  portfolios  in  his  private 
library,  numbering  about  15,000  pieces,  to  be  held  by  the  Board  in 
trust  for  the  people  of  Canada.  The  only  condition  made  by  Mr. 
Robertson  was  that  the  pictures  should  be  placed  in  a  suitable  room,,  with 
skilled  attendants,  covered  by  insurance,  catalogued,  and  that  they  should 
not  be  loaned  to  any  person  or  persons,  or  removed  from  the  Library 
building  on  College  street.  The  collection  was  to  be  known  as  the  "J.  Ross 
Robertson  Historical  Collection,"  and  if  any  one  wished  to  copy  a  picture 
of  the  collection  this  might  be  done  only  on  condition  that  permission  to  do 
so  was  obtained  from  the  Librarian,  and  that  the  collection  was  given  due 
credit  on  each  copy  of  a  picture  made,  or  if  published  in  book  or  other 
form,  each  reproduction  should  be  credited  to  the  collection. 

The  formal  opening  took  place  29th  January,  1912.  The  collection  at 
that  time  comprised  560  pictures,  for  these  were  all  that  were  ready 
for  hanging.  Since  then  the  growth  has  been  marvellous,  and  to- 
day (1917)  there  are  3,700  pictures  in  the  art  room.  Indeed,  it  is  the 
largest  collection  of  Canadian  pictures  gathered  by  any  one  person,  and 
that  a  private  person,  and  in  many  respects  compares  favorably  with  the 
sollection  accumulated  by  Dr.  Doughty,  in  the  Dominion  Archives  at  Ottawa. 

What  might  be  called  the  central  figure  is  the  magnificent  oil  portrait 
of  Governor  Simcoe,  by  E.  Wyly  GrieT,  showing  the  General  in  the  uniform 
he  wore  during  the  time  that  he  was  Lieutenant-Governor  (1792-6).  It 
was  fitting  that  this  portrait  should  be  unveiled  by  Sir  John  M.  Gibson, 
Lieutenant-Governor  of  Ontario,  when  this  collection  was  opened. 

A  unique  feature  is  the  reproduction  of  about  ninety  pen  and  pencil 
drawings  and  water  colors,  made  by  Mrs.  Simcoe.  Were  it  not  for  the 
gifted  hand  of  the  wife  of  our  first  Governor,  we  would  never  have  had  the 
faithful  pictures  of  places  and  scenes  in  Upper  and  Lower  Canada  from 
1791-6,  nor  of  the  early  days  of  the  Toronto,  Niagara  and  Kingston  settle- 
ments that  were  then,  and  are  now,  important  places  in  the  history  of  the 
Province  of  Upper  Canada. 

The  collection  has  been  made  up  by  levying  upon  practically  all  the 
print  shops  of  the  world,  and  while  it  covers  all  Canada  it  is  particularly 
rich  in  the  illustrations  of  Toronto  and  vicinity.  This,  of  course  can  be 
well  understood  when  one  remembers  that  Mr.  Robertson  is  a  native  of 
Toronto,  and  during  his  whole  life  has  devoted  a  great  deal  of  his  wonder- 
ergy  towards  building  up  institutional  work  within  the  city.

Province  of  British  Columbia,  was  named  by  the  officers  of  the  Hudson's 
Bay  Company  after  her  late  Majesty,  Queen  Victoria.  In  the  summer  of 
1843,  the  building  of  the  fort,  which  was  the  foundation  of  the  future  city 
of  Victoria,  was  commenced.  The  place  selected  was  known  to  the  Indians 
as  Camosun  or  Camosack.  It  was  given  the  name  of  Fort  Albert,  then 
Fort  Victoria,  and  finally  in  1852,  when  the  town  site  was  laid  out,  the 
name  Victoria  obtained.  The  city  was  incorporated  in  1862,  and  the  old 
fort  finally  demolished  in  1864.  Chromo  lithograph,  with  key.  Size  8  x  34.

King's  Bastion.  In  the  early  days  Louisburg  was  known  as  Havre  a 
1'Anglois  No  important  settlements,  however,  were  made  here  until  aft* 
the  surrender  of  Newfoundland  and  Acadia  to  Great  Britain  by  the  Treaty 
of  Utrecht  when  the  French  troops  and  inhabitants  evacuated  Placentia, 
Newfld.,  and  came  to  Louisburg.  In  1714  M.  de  St.  Ovide  de  Brouillan  was 
appointed  Governor,  and  some  six  years  later  the  fortress  was  com- 
menced. It  was  350  feet  long,  built  of  solid  masonry,  and  so  constructed 
that  in  time  of  trouble  it  could  be  surrounded  by  walls  and  moats  as  means 
of  defence.  Duke  d'Anville,  who  commanded  the  French  Armada,  1746, 
was  buried  in  the  citadel,  near  the  chapel.  Copied  from  a  plan  in  the

11— FORT  VANCOUVER— On  the  northern  bank  of  the  Columbia 
River,  ninety  miles  inland  from  the  sea.  It  was  built  in  1824-5  by  John 
McLoughlin,  first  great  leader  of  the  Hudson's  Bay  Company  in  the  Oregon. . 
Primarily  the  site  of  the  fort  was  about  a  mile  from  the  river.  This 
location,  however,  was  found  to  be  disadvantageous  to  transport  and  com- 
munication, and  after  a  few  years  a  removal  was  made  to  within  a  quarter 
of  a  mile  of  the  Columbia.  For  nearly  a  quarter  of  a  century  Fort  Van- 
couver was  an  emporium  of  the  Hudson's  Bay  Company;  for  its  central 
location  gave  access  to  interior  trade  as  well  as  sea  traffic.  In  1846,  on 
the  determination  of  the  Oregon  boundary  question,  this  fort  passed  into 
American  territory,  but  until  1849  remained  as  a  post  of  the  company. 
To-day  (1917)  the  place,  known  as  Vancouver,  capital  of  Clarke  County, 
Washington,  is  the  headquarters  of  the  military  department  of  th<

31— H  EARN  E— "Mr.  Samuel  Hearne,  late  Chief  at  Prince  of  Wales's 
Fort,  Hudson's  Bay" — For  several  years  a  midshipman  in  the  Royal  Navy. 
He  subsequently  entered  the  service  of  the  Hudson's  Bay  Company,  and 
in  1769  was  sent  on  an  expedition  to  discover  a  North-West  passage. 
Because  of  unsurmountable  difficulties,  the  expedition  was  a  failure,  as 
was  a  second  attempt  In  December,  1770,  however,  he  made  a  third 
essay  and  was  this  time  successful,  being  the  first  European  to  penetrate 
to  the  Arctic  Ocean  from  the  interior.  In  1774  he  established  Cumberland 
House,  on  the  west  shore  of  Cumberland  or  Pine  Island  Lake.  It  is  still

32— BRITISH  COLUMBIA  MINER,  1864— The  dress  of  early  miners  in 
British  Columbia  is  here  accurately  represented.  The  only  natives  of  B.C. 
at  that  time  were  Indians  and  half-breeds,  the  very  earliest  settlers  being 
employes  of  the  Hudson's  Bay  Company,  many  of  whom  married  Indian 
women.  The  men  who  were  working  in  the  country  at  the  date  of 
painting,  attracted  by  the  discovery  of  gold,  came  from  all  parts  of  the 
world  They  were  all  adventurers  and  for  the  most  part  a  superior  class 
of  men.  In  Cariboo  one  frequently  met  Oxford  and  Cambridge  men.  Most 
of  the  old-timers  have  passed  away,  and  since  the  advent  of  the  railways 
a  new  class  has  come  in  from  all  parts.  The  first  Mines  Report  in

the  number  of  miners  in  the  country  during  the  sixties,  but  it  is  said  that

into  the  gorge  near  the  city.  The  rush  of  the  upward  tide  and  the  Falls, 
which  become  visible  at  low  tide,  fill  the  stream  with  eddies  which  render 
navigation  impossible.  At  a  certain  stage  of  flood-tide,  and  for  a  few

about  north-north-west,  towards  the  citadel.  This  view  was  evidently  inspired 
by  John  Flemming's  old  spar  yard,  near  what  is  now  Geo.  S.  Camp- 
bell &  Co.'s  wharf,  Lower  Water  street,  near  foot  of  Salter  street.  The 
spar  house  has  been  demolished.  To  be  accurate  topographically,  the  space 
below  the  citadel,  in  the  distance  to  the  right,  should  be  shown  filled  with 
buildings,  as  here  lies  the  heart  of  the  city.  For  artistic  purposes  it  has 
been  left  devoid  of  buildings.  No  such  church  is  in  the  locality  shown  in 
background  to  the  left;  but  the  spire  of  St.  Mary's  Cathedral  (R.C.)  in  that 
direction  probably  suggested  its  introduction.  A  most  artistic  pen  drawing

Richardson,  No.  2  Castle  street,  Leicester  Square."  The  celebrated  poet, 
courtier  and  colonist  was  born  in  Scotland,  near  Stirling.  The  date  of  his 
birth  is  uncertain,  some  authorities  giving  1567,  and  others,  1580.  In  1621 
he  became  interested  in  colonization  and  persuaded  James  I.  to  grant  him 
a  charter  covering  a  large  territory  in  North  America — practically  what  is 
now  Nova  Scotia,  New  Brunswick,  and  Prince  Edward  Island.  The  colony 
was  named  "New  Scotland."  Shortly  after  the  accession  to  the  throne  of 
Charles  I.,  Sir  William  was  made  a  Privy  Councillor  and  Secretary  of 
State  for  Scotland,  which  offices  he  held  until  his  death.  Created  a  peer 
in  1630,  under  the  title  of  Viscount  of  Stirling  and  Lord  Alexander  of 
Tullibody;  three  years  later  was  raised  to  the  dignity  of  Earl  of  Stirling. 
Viscount  Canada,  etc.  He  contributed  largely  to  the  literature  of  his 
time,  first  coming  into  prominence  as  the  author  of  "The  Tragedies  of 
Darius."  He  also  completed  the  version  of  the  Psalms  of  David,  under- 
taken by  King  James  J.  His  death  took  place  in  1640.  Line  engraving.

Prentice  was  sent  with  public  despatches  from  Govr.  Haldiman  at  Quebec, 
to  Sir  Heny.  Clinton  at  New  York,  who,  with  18  seamen  and  passengers, 
were  cast  away  on  a  desolate,  uninhabited  part  of  the  Island  of  Cape 
Breton,  Deer.  5,  1780.  Five  perished  and  several  lost  their  fingers  and  toes 
by  the  severity  of  the  cold.  The  survivors  continued  in  this  place  several 
weeks,  when  Mr.  Prentice  and  such  as  were  able,  embarked  in  a  small, 
shatter'd  boat  to  seek  some  inhabited  country.  They  stopped  the  leakes  of 
their  boat  by  pouring  water  on  its  bottom  till  the  holes  were  closed  up  with 
ice.  During  a  voyage  of  two  months,  in  which  they  suffered  incredible 
hardships,  and  at  length,  worn  out  with  fatigue,  benumbed,  diseased  and 
famished,  they  were  discovered  by  some  of  the  native  Indians.  These 
friendly  savages  afterwards  went  to  assist  those  who  had  been  left  at  the 


wreck  of  whom  5  only  were  found  alive,  and  they  had  subsisted  many  days 
Tn  the  bodies  of  their  dead  companions.  (See  Ensign  Prentice's  Narra-

called  the  Grande  Place,  was  the  scene  of  military  parades  and  a  fashion- 
able promenade.  It  was  the  regular  meeting  place  of  the  Tandem  Club, 
which  flourished  in  Quebec  when  it  was  a  garrison  town.  In  1650,  the 
Huron  Indians,  who  had  been  driven  from  Lake  Simcoe,  encamped  here. 
To  the  left  of  the  picture  (No.  2)  is  shown  an  old  French  building,  used 
as  militia  headquarters,  formerly  a  commissariat  building,  where  in  the 
early  part  of  the  century  was  kept  the  specie  to  be  paid  out  to  the  troops 
and  army  contractors.  The  Church  of  England  Cathedral  is  on  the  right, 
while  in  the  foreground  is  the  Place  d'Armes.  The  habitant,  in  the  lower

AND  REGENT'S  BRIDGE— J.  Bouchette,  Esqr.,  del.  Engrav'd  by  W.  J. 
Bennett."  This  place,  now  (1917)  known  as  Montmagny,  is  the  county 
town  of  Montmagny.  Its  proper  designation  is  St.  Thomas  de  Mont- 
magny. The  town  is  one  of  the  oldest  on  the  banks  of  the  St.  Lawrence, 
a  parish  having  been  first  established  there  in  1679.  Many  of  the  original 
inhabitants  were  Bretons.  Riviere  du  Sud  is  a  small  but  beautiful  stream, 
rising  in  the  hills  to  the  south-west  in  Bellechasse  Co.,  joining  the  St. 
Lawrence  at  Montmagny.  Size  5x9. 

67  to  71— These  pictures  comprise  views  of  Quebec,  published  in  Ger- 
many about  1775 — four  engraved  and  printed  in  color  by  F.  X.  Habermann, 
acd  one  by  B.  F.  Leizelt.  They  are  imaginary,  and  were  made 
for  panoramic  representation.  No  mention  is  made  of  these  prints  by  P. 
Lee  Phillips,  F.R.G.S.,  of  the  Library  of  Congress,  Washington,  in  his 
work  cataloguing  the  maps,  plans,  etc.,  of  America,  while  Dr.  A.  G. 
Doughty,  Dominion  Archivist,  briefly  catalogues  them  in  his  "Bibilography 
of  the  Siege  of  Quebec."  Mr.  Phileas  Gagnon,  however,  the  keeper  of  the 
Judicial  Archives  of  Quebec,  says  with  regard  to  them:— "These  very 
curious  views  are  rather  the  fruit  of  an  inventive  imagination  than  pic- 


tures  of  the  localities  indicated;  but,  in  spite  of  this,  they  are  desirable 
additions  to  a  collection  of  Canadian  views.  Four  views  of  Boston  and  two 
of  New  York,  of  a  similar  character  to  these,  were  made  at  the  same  time 
by  the  same  German  designers."  The  inscriptions  on  the  pictures  are  in 
French  and  in  German.

D.  Chambers,  of  Quebec,  thinks  this  is  a  "complete  fake  picture."  None 
of  the  buildings  can  be  identified,  simply  because  they  never  existed,

'  79—  HABITANT  OVEN,  1860—  Ovens  similar  to  that  shown  in  the 
picture  are  to  be  seen  in  the  majority  of  French-Canadian  parishes  in  the 
Province  of  Quebec,  and  are  operated  exactly  as  the  ovens  of  professional 


bakers  in  the  towns.  They  are  built  of  brick  with  an  arched  top.  In  fact, 
except  that  the  bottom  of  the  oven  is  flat,  they  are  shaped  like  half  an 
egg.  They  are  covered  with  mortar  or  cement  on  the  outside  for  better 
preservation  of  the  structure,  and  have  usually  an  outer  wooden  covering 
as  shown  in  the  picture.  Almost  every  house  is  provided  with  one  of 
these  ovens.  A  fire  of  wood  is  made  in  the  oven,  and,  when  tne  latter  has 
become  well  heated,  the  fire  is  raked  out,  the  oven  carefully  swept,  and 
the  loaves  of  dough  inserted.  The  splendid  home-made  bread  thus  produced 
by  a  skilful  housewife  is  baked  through  in  about  an  hour.  Water  color,  by

130—  FATHERS  OF  CONFEDERATION  —  The  question  of  a  union  be- 
tween the  Provinces  of  British  North  America  was  first  brought  up  in 
1808  by  Robt.  J.  Uniacke,  a  member  of  the  Nova  Scotia  Legislature.     He 
was  followed  along  similar  lines  by  Chief  Justice  Sewell,  of  Quebec,  in 
1814,  Attorney-General  John  Beverley    Robinson    in    1822,    and  later  by 
Robert  Gourlay,  Lord  Durham,  Sir  A.  T.  Gait,  and  others.    To  Nova  Scotia 
also  belongs  the  honor  of  taking  the  first  legislative  action  in  tne  matter  by 
the  passing  in  1861  of  a  resolution  in  favor  of  federal  union.    Three  years 
later  the  Maritime  and  Quebec  conferences  were  held,  and  these  paved 
the  way  for  the  conference  at  London,  resulting  in  the  framing  of  the 
British  North  America  Act,  under  which  the  "Dominion  of  Canada"  came 
into  being.     With  the  picture  is  a  key  giving  the  names  of  the  states-

well  as  the  signals  used  at  the  signal  station.  It  was  customary  for  a 
soldier  on  Southern  Head  (Fort  Amherst),  lighthouse  and  fort,  to  go  be- 
tween the  flagstaffs  seen  at  the  head  of  the  picture,  to  the  right,  and  with,

Peninsula,  the  culminating  victory,  of  course,  being  that  of  Waterloo  on 
18th  June  1815.  His  character  presents  a  striking  contrast  to  that  of  his 
great  antagonist,  Napoleon,  in  that  he  never  indulged  in  the  slightest  mis- 
representation, even  to  save  his  own  fame.  It  is  a  coincidence  that  both

of  Rhodesia,  1896-97;  Director  of  British  South  Africa  Company,  1898-1904. 
During  his  stay  in  Canada  he  travelled  from  coast  to  coast,  became 
thoroughly  conversant  with  men  and  affairs.  In  fact,  it  is  said  that  no  man 
of  the  time  knew  as  much  of  Canada  as  the  former  Governor-General  whose 
career  in  the  Dominion  was  successful  in  the  highest  sense  of  the  term.  He 
was  born  Nov.  28th,  1851.  Died  Aug.  29th,  1917.  Re-plica  of  crayon  by

action  of  the  United  States  Government  in  not  keeping  in  order  the  unruly 
spirits  who  were  at  the  time  causing  annoyance  to  his  Majesty's  subjects 
on  the  frontier.  His  knowledge  of  By  town  (Ottawa)  and  its  qualifications

in  the  collection  of  the  Right  Honble.  the  Earl  of  Warwick,  by  J.  R.  Smith." 
He  was  born  on  the  banks  of  the  Ohio  in  1742.    His  father,  a  full-blooded 
Mohawk  of  the  Wolf  tribe,  died  when  the  lad  was  quite  young.    The  widow 
married  a  second  time,  an  Indian  whose  Christian  name  was  Barnet,  hence 
the  contraction  Brant.    Joseph  was  educated  at  "Moor  Charity  School,"  in 
Lebanon,  Conn.    Accompanied  Sir  William  Johnson  during  several  expedi- 
tions against  the  French,  and  took  part  in  many  of  the  encounters  between 
the  revolutionists  and  Indians.    His  allegiance  to  Britain  so  provoked  the 
Americans  that  the  valley  of  the  Mohawks,  the  original  home  of  his  people, 
suffered  more  than  any  other  part  of  the  country  during  the  war.    In  1776 
he  visited  England  and  was  presented  at  court.     He  proudly  declined  to 
kiss  the  King's  hand,  but  remarked  that  he  would  gladly  thus  salute  the 
Queen.    While  in  England  he  was  initiated  into  Freemasonry  in  "the  Falcon 
Lodge,"  in  Princess   Street,  Leicester  Fields,  London,   and  presented  by 
George  III.  with  a  Masonic  apron.    After  the  war,  he,  with  the  greater  part 
of  the  Mohawks,  and  a  number  of  Indians  from  the  other  five  tribes,  with- 
drew to  Canada,  where  the  Six  Nations  subsequently  received  grants  of 
land  near  Wellington  Square,  now  Burlington,  Ont.    Here  he  built  a  dwell- 
ing long  known  as  Brant  House.     In  1785,  through  his  efforts,  a  wooden 
church  was  erected  at  the  Mohawk    village,    near    Brantford,  where  was 
placed  the  first  "Church-going  bell"  that  ever  tolled  in  Upper  Canada.    He 
died  in  Brant  House,  24th  Nov.,  1807,  and  his  remains  were  interred  in  a 
vault  at  the  Mohawk  church  on  the  Grand  River.    Brant,  although  a  chief 
by  courtesy  and  ability,  and  always  so  called,  was  not  such  by  descent.    A

BRITISH  NAVY  FROM  1748-68—  This  is  a  companion  set  to  the  drawings  in 
To  n  of  the  1768'86  Period.  The  uniforms  of  British  naval  officers,

Gazette.  Under  his  careful  direction  and  by  aid  of  old  prints,  the  naval 
drawings  of  this  period  are  given.  The  first  uniform  for  the  executive 
officers  of  the  Royal  Navy  was  prescribed  by  regulations  issued  13th  April, 
1748.  Only  patterns  were  issued,  however,  but  it  is  known  from  portraits 
of  Anson  and  other  admirals,  that  the  full  dress  was  ornamental  and  expen- 
sive. In  1767  new  regulations  were  issued,  discontinuing  the  full  dress, 
altering  the  "frock  uniform  cloathing,"  or  what  would  now  be  called  un- 
dress, and  making  this  the  only  uniform  to  be  worn.  In  1768  and  1774  some 
further  alterations  were  made.  The  uniforms  of  the  Post  Captain  of  over 
three  years'  standing,  and  Junior  Captain,  were  copied  from  coats  and 
waistcoats  in  the  Royal  United  Service  Institution,  Whitehall,  Ixmdon,

in  1758  were  the  same  as  here  shown.  Water  colors.  Size  of  each  pic-

Island  of  Mackinaw.  Anna  Jameson,  fecit."  This  view,  at  the  northwest 
extremity  of  Lake  Huron,  was  taken  by  Anna  Jameson,  artist  and 
authoress,  and  wife  of  Chancellor  Robert  Jameson.  In  the  summer  of 
her  sojourn  in  Canada  the  lady  ventured  on  an  expedition  up 
Lake  Huron,  making  her  way  to  Sault  Ste.  Marie.  The  trip  occupied  two 
months,  and  during  this  time  Mrs.  Jameson  saw  a  good  deal  of  freedom 
and  roughness  of  life  amongst  the  Indians.  One  of  her  achievements  was 
the  shooting  of  the  rapids  of  Sault  Ste.  Marie  in  an  Indian  birch  bark 
canoe.  Pen  drawing.  Size  6x8.

215— BOUCHETTE,  LIEUT.-COLONEL  JOSEPH— Born  in  Canada, 
1774,  the  son  of  Commodore  Jean  Bouchette.  As  early  as  1790  Joseph  was 
employed  as  a  draftsman  in  the  office  of  his  uncle,  the  Hon.  Major  Holland, 
then  Surveyor-General  of  British  North  America.  The  following  year  he 
entered  the  provincial  navy,  sailing  the  Great  Lakes  until  1796.  Surveyed 
the  harbor  of  Toronto  in  1793.  The  following  year  succeeded  in  raising 
H.M.  war  vessel  "Onondaga,"  14  guns,  which  had  been  cast  away  in 
York  (Toronto)  harbor  and  abandoned;  taking  command  ne  sailed  with 
her  to  Niagara.  This  service  elicited  the  unqualified  approbation  of  Lord 
Dorchester,  and  Bouchette  was  raised  to  the  rank  of  second-lieutenant.  On 
the  reduction  of  the  navy  he  obtained  a  lieutenancy  in  the  Royal  Canadian 
Volunteers.  In  1803  he  was  appointed  Deputy  Surveyor-General,  and  the 
ensuing  year  Surveyor-General  of  Lower  Canada.  Served  with  merit  in 
the  War  of  1812.  Besides  publishing  maps  of  Canada  he  was  the  author 
of  a  "Topography  of  Lower  Canada,"  London,  1815,  and  "Topography  of 
the  British  Dominions  in  North  America,"  London,  1831-2.  The  boundary 
line  between  Canada  and  the  United  States,  as  laid  down  By  Col.  Bouchette, 
is  generally  conceded  to  be  a  much  fairer  one  than  that  determined  by  the 
Ashburton  Treaty.  His  death  occurred  at  Montreal,  April  9th,  1841.

246— SWALE,  MRS.  HOGARTH  J.— Foundress  of  Holy  Trinity  Church, 
Toronto.  In  1845  Mrs.  Swale,  who  resided  in  England,  through  the  Bishop 
of  Ripon,  afterwards  Archbishop  of  Canterbury,  gave  £5,000  sterling  to 
Bishop  Strachan  for  the  purpose  of  erecting  a  church  in  his  diocese.  Her 
express  conditions  were  that  the  church  be  called  the  "Church  of  the  Holy 
Trinity,"  that  the  seats  be  "free  and  unappropriated  forever,"  and  that  her 
name  remain  secret.  The  church  was  opened  and  consecrated  in  1847.

kept,  but  about  1894  the  name  became  known,  and  in  1897  the  church- 
wardens, feeling  it  was  then  no  breach  of  confidence,  alluded  to  the  matter

247— BOOTH,  REV.  WILLIAM  ("GENERAL"),  182^1912— Founder

early  age  became  a  member  of  the  Methodist  Church.  Was  much  interested 
in  evangelistic  work,  continuing  it  after  his  ordination  as  minister.  In 
1865  he  formed  the  Christian  Mission,  which  developed  into  a  large  organi- 
zation on  military  lines,  and  in  1878  became  known  as  the  Salvation  Army. 
Mr.  Booth,  commonly  called  "General,"  was  an  indefatigable  worker  and 
organizer,  and  kept  constantly  in  touch  with  the  international  work  of 
the  Army,  established  the  "War  Cry"  in  1880,  and  ten  years  later  pub- 
lished "Darkest  England  and  the  Way  Out."  In  1907,  Oxford  conferred 
upon  him  the  degree  of  D.C.L.  In  Washington  he  was  invited  to  open  the

Reserve,  a  few  miles  southwest  of  Buffalo,  N.Y.  In  1865-6  he  toured  Eng- 
land, and  in  1871  ran  at  Listowel,  Ont.  In  England  and  occasionally  in  the 
States  he  ran  in  moccasins  and  Indian  head-dress,  but  perrormed  best  in 
the  regulation  costume,  the  moccasins  and  feathers  being  worn  for  the 


entertainment  of  the  spectators  to  whom  he  was  somewhat  of  a  circus 
sensation.  He  ran  with  the  "flat-footed"  action  common  to  the  Indians, 
but  it  was  not  as  pronounced  as  the  "shamble"  of  the  Canadian  runner, 
Tom  Longboat.  Bennett's  death  occurred  in  1896  at  the  Cattaraugus 
Reservation.  The  name,  "Deerfoot,"  was  given  to  Bennett  because  of  his 
prowess  in  running  down  and  killing  deer  when  the  hard  crust  of  the 
winter's  snow  was  softened  by  the  sun  and  the  speed  of  the  quarry  thus 
retarded.  London:  Published  November  9th,  1861,  by  Geo.  Newbold,  303

SIMCOE  AND  HURON  RAILWAY— The  late  F.  C.  Capreol,  of  Toronto, 
conceived  the  idea  of  carrying  through  a  railroad  from  Toronto  to  Lake 
Huron.  He  met  with  many  obstacles  and  difficulties  in  his  plans.  Nothing 
daunted,  however,  he  persevered,  and,  finally,  on  the  15th  October,  1851, 
Lady  Elgin,  wife  of  the  then  Governor-General,  in  the  presence  of  a  large 
number  of  people  on  the  south  side  of  Front  street,  just  west  of  Simcoe 
street,  opposite  the  old  Parliament  Buildings,  turned  the  first  sod  of 
Canada's  first  railroad.  The  scene  was  a  gala  one.  Flags  floated,  banners 
flew,  while  Mayor  Bowes  was  resplendent  in  cocked  hat,  knee  breeches, 
silk  stockings,  and  shoes  with  silver  buckles.  In  1859  the  system  was  known

weddings  of  the  countryside.  It  was  presented  in  1910  to  the  York  Pioneer 
Society,  by  G.  W.  and  F.  W.  Heacock.  The  vehicle  known  as  the  "buggy" 
had  its  origin  in  India.  The  name  comes  from  the  Hindustani  "baggi."  In 
India  it  was  a  two-wheeled  vehicle  with  a  hood,  in  England  the  same,  with 
or  without  a  hood,  and  in  the  United  States  and  Canada  a  four-wheeled

1912 — The  men  at  the  whaling  station,  the  most  weasterly  on  the  island — 
are  engaged  in  cutting  up  the  bone  taken  from  the  skull  of  an  eighty-two 
foot  blue  whale,  captured  by  a  whaling  party  which  Mr.  Heming  accom- 
panied. The  blubber  is  first  stripped  off,  cut  into  pieces  about  a  foot 
square,  thrown  into  a  chopping  machine  and  ^he  minced  fat  carried  to  the 
rendering  tanks.  It  is  then  boiled  in  these  steam  tanks,  allowed  to  settle 
and  cool,  filtered  and  barrelled.  The  sediment,  or  stearine  remaining, 
which  resembles  lard,  is  valuable  in  the  making  of  soap  and  candles.  The 
flesh  is  cooked,  dried,  screened  and  blown  into  sacks,  to  be  sold  as 
fertilizer.  The  bones,  after  having  been  boiled,  are  broken  up,  dried  and 
pounded  fine,  and  then  also  sold  as  fertilizer.  Oil,  in  black  and  white,  by

283— THE  GRANGE— Head  of  John  street,  Toronto— The  main  build- 
ing was  erected  about  1820  by  D'Arcy  Boulton,  eldest  son  of  Justice  Boul- 
ton.  The  gate,  now  crowded  back  to  the  head  of  John  street,  was  origin- 
ally at  Queen  street,  and  the  house  was  reached  by  a  central  drive  through 
the  grounds,  beginning  at  the  east  side  of  McCaul  street.  In  the  social 
life  of  York  and  Toronto  the  Grange  played  an  important  part,  many 
notables  having  been  entertained  there.  After  the  death  of  D'Arcy  Boul- 
ton in  1844,  his  widow  continued  to  reside  there  with  her  eldest  son, 
William  Henry  Boulton.  The  widow  of  the  latter  married  Prof.  Goldwin

288—  ELMSLEY  VILLA,  TORONTO— Situated  on  what  Is  now  the

and  north  This  charming  roughcast  villa  was  built,  1839-40,  by  Hon.  John 
Simcoe  Macaulay,  and  during  Lord  Elgin's  residence  in  Toronto,  1849-54, 
was  used  for  the  gubernatorial  mansion,  as  the  real  Government  House 
was  at  that  time  undergoing  extensive  repairs.  Lord  Elgin  was  particularly 
attracted  by  the  surroundings  of  Elmsley  Villa,  and  when  he  came  from 
Montreal  in  the  autumn  of  1849  expressed  himself  as  highly  pleased  with 
his  new  home.  From  1855-75  Knox  College  held  its  sessions  here,  and  a 
considerable  addition  was  made  to  the  original  building  to  provide  dormi- 
tories for  the  students.  Finally  the  site  was  occupied  by  the  Central 
(Grosvenor  Street)  Presbyterian  Church,  which,  in  1916,  is  still  standing.

the  northerly  limit  of  Gwynne  St.  (Park  Road),  where  it  united  with 
Little  James  St.  (Collier).  The  property  was  purchased  In  1824  by  the 
late  Sheriff  Wm.  Botsford  Jarvis.  At  that  time  the  hillsides  thereabout 
were  covered  with  roses,  hence  the  origin  of  the  name,  "Rosedale,"  which 
was  given  by  Mrs.  Jarvis,  who  was  a  granddaughter  of  Chief  Justice 
Powell.  During  Sheriff  Jarvis'  occupation  of  the  house,  verandahs  and  a 
conservatory  were  added  and  extensions  made.  All  this,  however,  was 
subsequently  removed.  A  part  of  the  house  was  moved  *and 
made  into  a  dwelling  on  Roxboro  St.  E.,  but  this  has  also  disappeared.  The 
main  entrance  to  the  Jarvis  property  to-day  is  No.  12  Rosedale  Road.

those  days.  The  old  station  at  the  corner  of  Bay  and  Front  streets  was

Upper  Canada  suffered  great  inconvenience  from  the  scarcity  of  fractional 
currency,  caused  by  the  suspension  of  specie  payments  in  consequence  of 
the  Rebellion.  Due  bills  of  merchants  increased  to  such  an  extent  that 

50     ..- 

people  became  shy  of  accepting  them.  Mr.  T.  D.  Harris,  of  the  hardware 
firm  of  Watkins  &  Harris,  King  street  east,  on  permission  of  the  Mayor, 
issued  fractional  currency,  an  example  of  which  is  here  given.  The  bills 
were  redeemable  at  the  "Sign  of  the  Anvil  and  Sledge,"  the  well-known  sign 
of  the  firm,  and  were  guaranteed.  The  total  amount  put  out  was  several 
thousand  dollars.  Mr.  Watkins  subsequently  sold  his  share  in  the  business,

334— OLDEST  PLANTED  TREE  IN  TORONTO— A  native  white  elm- 
This  noted  landmark  of  the  northern  part  of  Toronto  stands  in  the  grounds 
of  Rosedale  House,  residence  of  the  late  Wm.  Botsford  Jarvis,  who  froi 
1827-56  was  Sheriff  of  the  Home  District.  It  was  two  years  old  wh< 
planted,  on  24th  May,  1822,  by  Amelia  Jarvis,  eldest  daughter  of  Fredericl 
Starr  Jarvis,  a  brother  of  the  Sheriff.  The  event  commemorated  the  birth- 
day of  Princess  Victoria  (her  Majesty  Queen  Victoria),  24th  May,  1819, 
which  was  also  the  birthday  of  Amelia  Jarvis.  The  fused  tree,  which 
comes  from  one  root,  has  the  remarkable  girth  of  26  feet,  due  to  branching 
very  low.  This  measurement  includes  the  main  trunk,  (1)  which  is  by 
itself  21  *£  feet,  and  a  branch,  (2)  by  itself  of  8  feet.  The  crown  is 
tremely  broad,  having  a  sweep  greater  than  the  height  of  the  tree,  whicl 
is  75  feet.  The  average  increase  in  radius  of  half  an  inch  a  year  shows 
that  its  age  is  95  years.  The  main  entrance  to  the  Jarvis  property  to-day 
is  No.  12  Rosedale  road.  The  original  residence  was  demolished  mai 
years  ago  and  nothing  remains  (1916)  to  mark  the  site  except  a  few  oul

of  the  company  took  place,  and  on  3rd  December,  1855,  the  Toronto  and  • 
Hamilton  branch  of  the  line  was  opened  for  traffic.  For  a  time  the  Great 


Western  used  the  Union  Station  at  the  foot  of  York  street.  In  March, 
1866,  their  own  depot  at  the  eastern  angle  of -Esplanade  and  Yonge  street 
was  opened.  On  llth  August,  1882,  the  Great  Western  amalgamated  with

Upper  Canada  did  not  commence  operations  until  about  1822.  For  many 
years  it  did  a  flourishing  business,  but  finally  became  embarrassed, 
burdened  with  unsaleable  lanji^ taken  as  security,  and  in  1866  failed.  Hon. 
William  Allan,  one  of  the  incorporators,  was  the  first  president,  and  it  was 
in  the  substantial  brick  building  erected  by  him  in  1818,  at  the  corner  of 
King  and  Frederick  streets,  that  the  bank  for  a  number  of  years  did  busi- 
ness, removing  from  there  about  1830  to  the  northeast  corner  Duke  and 
George,  and  in  the  early  sixties  to  the  southeast  corner  of  Yonge  and

home  of  his  son-in-law,  Captain  John  Clarke,  well-known  as  an  officer  of 
the  100th  Regiment,  and  also  of  the  Royal  Canadian  Rifles.  It  was  torn

well  patronized  by  the  boys  of  Upper  Canada  College,  which  was  then  on 
King  street.  Masterson  had  a  small  schooner,  the  "Christina,"  with  which 
he  is  said  to  have  done  considerable  smuggling  in  the  early  days.  His

one  of  the  early  houses  in  York,  being  considered  quite  an  old  house  in 
1825.  In  its  latter  days  it  was  used  as  a  barn.  For  some  years  the  cottage 
was  occupied  by  Lieut.  Mudge,  an  artillery  officer,  and  one  of  the  aides-de- 
camp of  Sir  John  Colborne,  K.C.B.,  Lieut-Governor  of  Upper  Canada,  1828-

different  times  until  1867  they  were  used  as  a  court  of  law,  university, 
asylum  and  military  barracks.  In  1867  the  sessions  of  the  Ontario  Legisla- 
ture met  within  the  walls  of  the  red  brick  pile,  continuing  to  do  so  until

modation for  University  College,  the  name  given  by  legislation  to  the  Arts 
teaching  faculty  of  the  University  in  that  year.  In  1858  the  handsome 
freestone  pile,  of  Norman  architecture,  was  completed,  but,  unfortunately, 
the  February  of  1890  saw  its  destruction  by  fire.  It  was  rebuilt,  however, 
in  1890-2  in  practically  the  same  external  form  as  it  stands  to-day  (1917), 
but  with  various  internal  changes.  The  main  doorway,  which  is  a  copy  of

structure,  which  is  of  stone,  is  designed  after  the  Renaissance  style  of 
architecture,  and  was  first  occupied  November,  1876.  The  vacant  lot 
west  of  the  building  was  purchased  by  the  Government  as  a  protective

517— STEAMER  CHIEF  JUSTICE  ROBINSON— Landing  her  passen- 
gers in  the  winter  of  1852-3  on  the  ice  in  Toronto  Bay,  east  of  Queen's 
Wharf,  and  about  1,500  feet  south  of  the  then  north  shore  of  Toronto  Bay. 
The  route  from  Toronto  to  Montreal  in  1852  was  by  boat  to  a  point  on 
the  Niagara  River,  probably  Lewiston;  rail,  Niagara  Falls  to  Whitehall 
via  Albany;  boat,  Plattsburg;  rail  to  Caughnawaga  via  West  Chazy,  Moore's 
Junction  and  St.  Isidore  Junction;  ferry  to  Lachine,  and  rail  to  Montreal. 
At  that  time  there  were  nine  railway  lines  used  from  Montreal  to  Niagara 
Falls,  several  of  which  were  consolidated  into  the  New  York  Central  in 
1853.  The  "Chief  Justice  Robinson,"  400  tons  burthen,  was  built  at 
Niagara,  1842.  She  was  owned  and  commanded  by  Captain  Hugh  Richard- 
son, and  was  a  well-known  packet  on  the  route  between  Lewiston  and 
Toronto  for  several  years.  Subsequently  she  was  sold,  her  engine  eventu- 
ally being  put  into  a  new  steamer,  the  "Marine  City."  Water  color  by  Wm.

521— MARYVILLE  LODGE,  YORK  (TORONTO),  1794-1854— The 
home  of  Surveyor-General  (Sir)  David  W.  Smith,  who  came  to  York  in 
the  train  of  Governor  Simcoe.  Mr.  Smith,  who  was  a  member  of  the 
Executive  Council  and  Surveyor-General  of  Upper  Canada,  became  the 
possessor  of  some  20,000  acres  in  the  Province,  and  was  the  original  owner 
of  the  park  lot  which  constituted  the  Moss  Park  estate.  Maryville  Lodge 
was  a  one-storey  frame  structure,  facing  the  north  side  of  King  street, 
near  the  northeast  corner  of  King  and  Ontario  streets.  At  one  end  was 
Mr.  Smith's  office.  From  the  fact  that  the  house  was  painted  yellow  it 


acquired  the  appellation  of  "The  Yellow  House."  It  subsequently  became 
a  school  and  now  (1916)  stores  occupy  the  site.  Water  color  by  F.  V.

part  of  the  De  La  Salle  Institute.  Water  color.  Size  5x6.  See  502. 

east corner  of  King  and  Frederick  streets.  The  building  was  erected  in 
1807  by  Quetton  St.  George,  who  in  1805  established  himself  in  business  in 
York.  For  its  construction  Mr.  St.  George  brought  from  Oswego  or 
Rochester  the  first  bricks  ever  seen  in  York.  The  ground  floor  and  part 
of  the  cellar  were  used  by  the  builder  for  carrying  on  his  general  mercan- 
tile business,  while  the  remainder  of  the  building  was  occupied  as  a  resi- 
dence. In  1817  Mr.  St.  George  transferred  this  property  to  Mr.  John 
Spread  Baldwin,  who  conducted  the  business  for  a  number  of  years.  Sub- 
sequently the  corner  came  into  possession  of  the  Canada  Company,  which 
was  established  in  York  in  1826,  its  first  office  being  a  room  in  the  Steam- 
boat Hotel,  east  of  the  market  block  in  Front  street.  In  the  colonization 
of  Canada  this  company  played  an  important  part.  The  site  of  the  old 
Canada  Company's  Building  is  (1917)  occupied  by  Adams  Bros.,  saddlers,

524— SHAKESPEARE  HOTEL,  TORONTO,  1831-70— It  was  a  medium- 
sized,  two-storey,  white  frame  structure,  on  the  north-east  corner  of 
York  and  King  streets,  fronting  on  York  street.  It  was  occupied  as  a 
Mechanics'  Boarding  House  till  1843,  when  James  Mirfield,  an  Englishman, 
kept  it  as  the  Shakespeare  Hotel.  After  his  death  Mr.  Thomas  Kerr,  an 
enterprising  citizen,  was  the  landlord.  The  house  was  patronized  largely 
by  the  theatrical  profession.  For  a  time  plays  were  put  on  in  a  small 
frame  theatre  at  the  rear  and  east  of  the  hotel,  entrance  to  which  was 
gained  by  a  lane  from  King  street.  It  continued  open  until  John  Ritchey 
built  the  Royal  Lyceum  on  the  south  side  of  King  street.  The  hotel  was 
demolished  about  1870  and  later  rebuilt.  It  continued  as  an  hotel  under 
various  names  for  45  years,  and  was  last  known  as  the  Imperial.  It  is  now 
(1917)  vacant.  Water  color.  Size  5x7. 

525— ANDREW    MERCER'S   COTTAGE,   YORK    (TORONTO)— At  the 

south-east  corner  of  Bay  and  Wellington  streets,  erected  about  1811-12  by 
Andrew  Mercer,  who  came  to  York  with  Chief  Justice  Scott,  acquiring 
large  tracts  of  land  from  the  Crown.  During  the  War  of  1812  the  printing 
office  of  the  Upper  Canada  Gazette  was  removed  to  this  house,  and  for  a 
time  Mr.  Mercer  had  charge  of  the  publication  of  the  paper.  On  the  occu- 
pation of  York  by  the  Americans  the  place  was  entered  and  the  printing 
press  demolished.  At  Mr.  Mercer's  death,  in  1871,  a  legal  dispute  arose 
regarding  the  validity  of  the  will  purported  to  have  been  made  by  him, 
and  the  result  was  that  the  valuable  properties  were  escheated  to  the 
Crown.  The  Ogilvie  Building  now  (1917)  stands  on  the  site  of  the  old 
cottage.  Water  color.  Size  5x7.

now  (1917)  the  site  of  the  rear  of  John  Macdonald  &  Co.'s  warehouse,  32-6 
Front  street  east.  In  1835  Mr.  Thomas  Carfrae  succeeded  Mr.  George 
Savage  as  collector  of  customs.  He  will  be  remembered  as  the  originator 
of  the  Potter's  Field  in  Toronto.  Water  color.  Size  6x7 


527— SEVERN'S  BREWERY,  YORKVILLE— On  the  east  side  of 
Yonge  street,  just  north  of  Davenport  road.  In  1835  John  Severn,  a  York 
blacksmith,  removed  to  Yorkville,  establishing  there  a  smithy  in  which  he 
worked  for  a  short  time  prior  to  his  taking  over  the  brick  and  stone 
brewery  erected  by  John  Baxter.  The  brewery  was  enlarged  from  time 
to  time  by  Severn,  and  on  his  death  by  his  son  George,  who  conducted  the 
business  until  1890.  John  Severn  was  one  of  the  first  five  councillors  or 
aldermen  of  Yorkville  at  the  time  of  its  incorporation  in  1853.  Water

Lodge  avenue.  Several  additions  have  been  made  to  the  original  red 
brick  house.  The  building  is  now  occupied  by  the  Monastery  of  Our  Lady 
of  Charity.  Lieut.-Col.  O'Hara,  for  many  years  a  well-known  citizen  of 
Toronto,  served  with  distinction  throughout  the  whole  of  the  Peninsular 
Campaign,  and  for  a  time  was  in  the  Canadian  Militia.  From  a  water

529— GEORGE  DUGGAN'S  STORE,  TORONTO— About  1805  the  Rev. 
George  O'Kill  Stewart,  first  rector  of  St.  James'  Church  (Cathedral), 
erected  on  the  south-east  corner  of  King  and  George  streets  a  small  frame 
residence  as  a  rectory.  Attached  to  it  he  constructed  a  small  stone  build- 
ing, afterwards  clapboarded,  and  in  this  unpretentious  place  the  first  Dis- 
trict school  in  York  was  conducted  from  1807-13.  In  that  year,  on  Dr. 
Stewart's  removal  to  Kingston,  Mr.  George  Duggan,  father  of  Recorder 
Duggan,  became  the  occupant  of  the  old  rectory,  keeping  a  general  store 
there.  With  him  resided  his  brother,  Dr.  Thos.  Duggan,  a  well-known 
York  physician.  At  a  later  date,  Hughes  Bros.,  clothiers,  occupied  the 
building.  From  1856  until  the  early  seventies,  when  the  building 
was  demolished,  John  Kitson  and  others  conducted  a  tavern  there.  A 
brick  hostelry,  the  York  Hotel,  now  (1917)  stands  on  the  site.  Water  color.

between  Princes  street  to  the  west  and  Berkeley  street  to  the  east. 
Firstbrook's  Box  Factory,  283  King  east,  is  now  located  on  the  site.  It 
was  a  storey  and  a  half  frame  building,  with  dormer  windows  along  its 
roof,  and  in  the  early  days  was  the  first-class  hotel,  not  only  of  York,  but 
of  all  Upper  Canada.  It  was  one  of  the  oldest  houses  in  York,  and  as  far 
back  as  1820  presented  a  dilapidated  appearance.  Before  the  completion  of 
the  Legislative  Buildings  which  succeeded  those  burned  by  the  Americans 
when  they  occupied  York  in  1813,  the  Parliament  of  U.C.  met  for  one 
session  in  the  ball  room  of  the  hotel,  and  here  also  public  dinners  and 
assemblies  were  held.  John  Jordan  was  a  pew  holder  in  St.  James'  Church 
(Cathedral)  from  its  inception,  and  was  one  of  the  signatories  to  a  con- 
gratulatory address  presented  to  Lieut.-Governor  Sir  Francis  Gore  on  his 
return  from  England  in  1815.  Water  color  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size  6x8.

Joshua  G.  Beard  about  1825,  on  the  south-east  corner  of  King  and  East 
Market  streets.  For  about  ten  years  the  ground  floor  was  used  as  a  com- 
bined tailoring  establishment  and  tavern,  known  as  the  Crown  Inn,  and 
conducted  by  Thomas  Moore.  During  his  occupancy  the  upper  floor  was 
the  office  of  the  Courier,  edited  by  George  Gurnett,  and  from  1836-58  the 
Mirror  was  published  there  by  Charles  Donlevy.  On  Moore's  removal  the 
ground  floor  was  occupied  as  a  grocery  store  by  William  Henderson.  The 
second  door  south  on  East  Market  street  was  William  Gibson's  saddlery,  the 
third  was  Thomas  Berkinshaw's  grocery,  and  at  the  right  of  the  picture 
is  shown  the  Albion  Hotel,  kept  by  George  Platt.  Water  color.  Size  4x6.

Director  of  the  Northern  Railway,  organized  the  Tenth  Royals  in  1861-2. 
Early  in  January,  1862,  drill  began  for  the  officers,  and  in  March  the  offi- 
cial list  of  appointments  was  compiled.    On  6th  July,  1863,  a  set  of  colors 
was  presented  by  the  ladies  of  Toronto,  the  event  taking  place  on  the 
commons  which  were  in  those  days  bounded  by  Spadina  avenue,  College, 
Cecil  and  Huron  streets.    Mrs.  Cumberland  read  the  presentation  address, 
after  which  Col.  Robertson,  commandant  of  the  garrison,  handed  first  the 
Queen's  and  then  the  regimental  colors  to  her.    She  in  turn  presented  them 
to  the  ensigns,  who  received  them  kneeling.    Rev.  Dr.  McCaul,  President  of 
Toronto  University,  consecrated  the  colors.     The  regimental  color  is  of 
heavy  blue  silk;  near  the  top  is  a  crown  beautifully  embroidered  with  the 
motto,  "Ready,  aye  ready."    The  number  of  the  regiment  is  encircled  by 
a   beautiful   wreath   in    appropriate    colors    and    composed    of   the    Rose, 
Thistle,   Shamrock  and    Maple    Leaf,    while    underneath   are   the   words 
*  Tenth  Royal  Regiment  T.V."     On  the  Union  Jack  is  a  crown  of  bullion, 
with  "X  Regiment  T.V.  Canada"  of  the  same  material.    The  staff  of  each 
color  is  surmounted  by  a  lion  and  crown  in  solid  silver,  and  a  shield  in- 
serted into  each  staff  contains  the  legend  that  the  colors  were  "Presented 
to  the  Tenth  Royals  by  the  Ladies  of  Toronto."    The  Tenth  Royals  in  1881 
became    known    as    Tenth    Battalion    Royal     Grenadiers.       Water     color.

540 — TORONTO  BOARD  OF  TRADE — Members  representing  the  Council 
and  other  officers  of  the  Board,  1888.  The  Act  incorporating  the  Board  of 
Trade  of  the  City  of  Toronto  was  passed  by  the  Legislature  of  Canada  on 
the  10th  of  February,  1845.  George  Percival  Ridout,  the  first  President, 
continued  in  office  until  1851.  In  1884  the  Toronto  Corn  Exchange  amal- 
gamated with  the  Board  of  Trade  by  Act  of  Parliament.  Two  years  later 
negotiations  were  entered  into  for  the  purchase  of  a  building  site,  and  on 
29th  January,  1891,  the  annual  meeting  was  held  in  the  new  home  of  the 
Board,  corner  Front  and  Yonge  streets.  They  removed  to  the  Royal  Bank 
Building  in  1915.  It  is  a  noteworthy  fact  that  the  Toronto  Board  of  Trade 
has  not  only  played  a  part  in  the  legislation  of  the  country,  but  conserves 
the  local  interests  of  the  people.  The  present  President  (1917)  Is  Mr.

and  the  print,  showing  it  as  Mr.  Howard  primarily  planned  it,  was  made 
about  1847.  In  the  actual  erection,  however,  the  original  scheme  was  not 
strictly  adhered  to.  This  was  the  first  institution  of  its  kind  to  be  built 
in  Western  Canada.  Previous  to  its  erection  the  insane  were  housed  in

545— EASTERN  VIEW  OF  YORK  (TORONTO),  1810— Showing  block- 
house destroyed  by  Americans  in  1813.  There  has  been  some  dispute  as 
to  the  exact  spot  on  which  this  blockhouse  stood.  Some  writers  claim  that 
it  was  on  the  east  side  of  the  Don,  but  the  best  authorities  state  that  it 
was  on  the  west  side  of  "The  Little  Don,"  for,  in  1796-1815,  the  river  was 
a  delta  at  its  mouth,  one  entrance  being  known  as  "The  Little  Don,"  and 
the  other  as  "The  Don."  The  blockhouse  stood  east  of  Berkeley  street, 
south  of  Palace  (Front)  street,  near  the  point  where  the  Little  Don  entered 
the  Bay.  It  was  designed  to  protect  the  road  or  track  leading  to  the 
peninsula,  where  there  was  a  landing  place  on  the  south  shore.  There  is 
now  no  double  entrance  or  delta,  as  the  river,  by  dredging,  nas  been  made 
to  flow  in  one  stream  into  Toronto  Bay.  Water  color  by  E.  Wyly  Grier.

RICHMOND  STREETS — This  was  a  popular  place  of  resort  for  many  years, 
kept  by  Richard  Crispin,  first  as  a  grocery  shop,  and  about  1836  converted 
into  a  tavern.  The  house,  a  one  and  a  half  storey  structure,  with  entrance 
on  Richmond  street,  at  that  time  known  as  Hospital  street,  was  built  on  the 
corner  of  a  plot  of  ground  owned  by  John  Long.  Crispin,  who  had  come 
to  York  in  1828  with  Sir  John  Colborne,  as  his  coachman,  was  a  well-known, 
genial  character  in  the  locality,  and  was  familiarly  called  "Coachman 
Crispin."  The  tavern,  after  his  death,  again  became  a  shop.  Water  color.

Away  back  about  the  mid-forties  Mr.  James  Townsley,  who  owned  the 
large  brickyards  in  Tannery  Hollow,  on  Yonge  street,  built  for  himself  a 
brick  dwelling.  The  picture  shows  the  rear  of  the  residence  and  property 
on  Roxborough  street,  at  the  south-west  corner  of  Yonge.  The  buildings 
at  the  corner  are  now  (1917)  1086-88  Yonge.  The  dwelling  does  not  face 
Yonge;  its  front  is  on  a  lane  which  runs  east  and  west,  with  the  front

550— BANK   OF   BRITISH    NORTH   AMERICA,   TORONTO— The  first 
>ronto  branch  of  this  bank  was  established  in  1837   at  the   south-east 
>rner  of  King  and  Frederick  streets,  in  the  old  Bank  of  Upper  Canada 
building.    The  structure  in  the  picture  was  erected  in  1843  at  the  north- 
east corner  of  Yonge  and  Wellington  streets.     In  1871  it  was  torn  down 
rebuilt   as   it   stands   to-day    (1917).     Water   color   by   F.   V.   Poole. 


STREETS,  TORONTO,  1843-78 — The  building  on  the  corner  was  the  resi- 
dence of  Chancellor  Blake  from  1849-57.  It  was  then  occupied  by  John 
Salt,  a  Toronto  hatter,  and  from  1865-75  by  a  branch  of  the  City  Bank  of 
Montreal.  The  building  to  the  south  was  the  residence  of  Dr.  Adams, 
1855-65.  It  was  afterwards,  until  1873,  occupied  by  the  Grand  Trunk  Rail- 
way. Both  buildings  were  demolished  in  1878  to  make  way  for  W.  R. 
Brock  &  Co.'s  warehouse,  which  was  destroyed  by  fire  in  1904,  but  re- 
erected  on  the  same  site.  Water  color.  Size'  5x6. 

552— OLD  CRYSTAL  PALACE,  TORONTO,  1858-66— It  was  the  first 
permanent  Exhibition  building,  and  stood  on  what  was  then  known  as 
Garrison  Common,  just  south  of  the  Provincial  Lunatic  Asylum.  It  was 
erected  for  the  housing  of  exhibits  other  than  live  stock  or  heavy  agricul- 
tural implements.  When  H.R.II.  the  Prince  of  Wales  (King  Edward  VII.) 
visited  Toronto  during  the  Exhibition  of  1860,  a  ball  was  held  in  this  build- 
ing in  his  honor.  The  site  is  now  (1917)  occupied  by  manufacturing  firms 
and  the  C.P.R.  yards.  Water  color.  Size  4  x  t>. 

of  Hon.  James  B.  Macaulay,  and  later  the  Bishop  Strachan  School  for  Girls — 
This  brick  residence  on  the  south  side  of  College  street,  near  the  present 
Yonge  street,  was  erected  about  1843  by  Chief  Justice  Macaulay  and  by  him 
called  Wickham  Lodge,  after  the  village  of  Wickham,  in  Hampshire,  Eng., 
where  some  of  his  relatives  lived.  Lady  Macaulay  adopted  the  spelling 
"Wykeham,"  which  obtains  to-day  (1917).  From  1869-1915  the  building 
was  occupied  by  the  Bishop  Strachan  School,  founded  in  1867,  for  a  time 
held  at  "Pinehurst,"  Grange  road,  and  then  in  the  Palace,  residence  of 
Bishop  Strachan,  Front  street.  The  old  home  of  the  Chief  Justice  has 
been  altered  and  enlarged  considerably.  The  entire  property,  from  it^ 
eastern  extremity,  west  of  Yonge,  to  its  western  boundary  at  Teraulay 
street,  was  sold  in  1914  for  business  purposes,  the  school  retaining  the  use 
of  the  buildings  till  the  completion  of  their  new  structure  on  Russell  Hill 
road,  Toronto.  The  building  is  now  a  Military  Convalescent  Hospital.

554— OSGOODE  HALL,  TORONTO— Home  of  the  Superior  Courts  of 
Ontario — In  1826  the  Law  Society  of  Upper  Canada  (incorporated  1797) 
purchased  from  Attorney-General  Sir  John  Beverley  Robinson  six  acres  of 
land,  at  what  is  now  (1917)  the  n.e.  corner  of  Queen  street  and  University 
avenue.  In  the  midst  of  this  plot,  and  facing  Queen  street,  stands  Osgoode 
Hall,  named  in  honor  of  Hon.  Wm.  Osgoode,  first  Chief  Justice  of  Upper 
Canada.  The  east  wing,  a  square,  brick,  two-and-a-half  storey  structure, 
was  begun  in  1829,  under  supervision  of  Dr.  Wm.  Warren  Baldwin,  then 
treasurer  of  the  Law  Society,  and  completed  in  1832.  In  1844-6  a  corre- 
sponding wing  was  built  to  the  west,  and  the  two  buildings  connected  by  a 
dome  surmounted  structure.  In  1857-60  the  entire  edifice  was  renovated, 
the  dome  removed,  a  handsome  facade  of  cut  stone,  inner  area  of  Caen 
stone,  court  rooms,  library  and  offices  added.  From  time  to  time  since, 
further  additions  have  been  made  at  the  rear,  and  other  improvements 
effected.  On  the  occasion  of  the  Prince  of  Wales'  visit  to  Toronto  in  1860 
an  entertainment  was  given  in  his  honor  at  Osgoode  Hall,  when  the 
architectural  lines  of  the  exterior  were  brilliantly  marked  out  by  rows  of 
minute  gas-jets.  The  fence — classical  in  design — enclosing  the  grounds 
was  erected  just  before  the  Prince's  visit,  and  is  one  of  the  best  pieces 
of  iron  work  in  Toronto.  The  entrance  gate  faces  the  Queen  street  front- 
age of  495  feet;  the  two  flanks  on  University  and  Chestnut  streets  each 
measure  163  feet.  The  cost  of  the  fence  was  approximately  $20  a  running 
foot,  and  $40  for  each  post,  making  a  total  of  about  $20,000,  there  being  16 
posts  on  each  flank  and  50  on  the  front.  Water  colors  (three  in  one  frame).

YORK  (TORONTO),  1821— On  Front  street,  between  Peter  and  Windsor 
streets  At  that  date  these  two  residences  were  the  most  prominent  build- 
ings on  Front  street.  The  Cruickshank  house,  used  by  invading  officers 
during  the  occupation  of  York  by  the  Americans,  became  the  rear  part  of 
the  later  and  more  commodious  residence  shown  in  the  picture.  In  1863 
the  house  was  divided  into  two  dwellings,  and  in  1881  was  finally  demol- 
ished The  builder,  Hon.  George  Cruickshank,  was  Deputy  Commissary- 
General  of  U.C.  from  1797-1815.  The  residence  to  the  right,  behind  the 
poplars  was  that  of  John  Beikie,  Clerk  of  the  Executive  Council  of  Upper 
Canada,  1820-37.  This  site  is  now  (1917)  occupied  as  railway  yards.

561— OLD  WADSWORTH  MILL,  WESTON,  ONT.,  1854-1917— The  vil- 
lage of  Weston,  on  the  Humber  River,  was  practically  founded  during  the 
War  of  1812-14  by  the  Government,  which  erected  a  mill  there  for  the  pur- 
pose of  providing  flour  for  the  troops  in  active  service.  In  1814  the  mill 
was  leased  by  James  Farr,  and  in  turn  transferred  by  him  to  Charles  and 
William  Wadsworth,  in  1828.  Subsequently  the  Wadsworth  brothers  pur- 
chased the  freehold  of  the  property  from  the  Government.  A  second  mill, 
the  present  (1917),  was  erected  in  1854,  four  miles  from  the  Humber's 
mouth  as  the  crow  flies.  The  first  had  four  run  of  Burr  millstones,  while

May  Be,")  and  Raymond  Baby,  .all  of  whom  were  military  officials.  It 
was  used  by  the  Royal  Engineers  as  an  office  for  a  time.  During  Captain 
Bonnycastle's  residence  here  in  the  forties,  the  beach  below  the  house  on 
the  bay  shore  was  the  favorite  bathing  spot  for  the  boys  of  Upper  Canada 
College.  About  1857  the  dwelling  was  torn  down.  The  land  on  which  this 
residence  stood  was  originally  part  of  Front  street,  south  of  the  south  line 
of  the  street,  where  the  Esplanade  was  made  in  1854-7.  The  part  south 
of  Front  street  was  cut  away  down  to  the  level  of  the  Esplanade.  It  is

of  Trinity  College,  and  was  built  by  Captain  (Major-General)  Aeneas  Shaw, 
a  member  of  the  Executive  Council  of  Upper  Canada,  shortly  after  he 
settled  in  York  in  1793.  It  was  in  this  log  cabin  that  Major-Gen.  Shaw 
had  the  honor  of  entertaining  H.R.H.  the  Duke  of  Kent,  father  of  Queen 
Victoria,  on  the  occasion  of  his  visit  to  York.  A  larger  and  more  pre- 
tentious residence,  said  to  have  been  the  first  private  house  of  frame 
erected  in  York,  was  afterwards  built,  a  little  to  the  west  of  the  log  house.

became  the  headquarters  of  the  leaders  of  the  Radical  party,  Mclntosh 
being  a  brother-in-law  of  William  Lyon  Mackenzie.  The  name  of  the  inn 
was  later  changed  to  the  "Falcon,"  and  then  to  the  "Craven  Heifer."  In

ing the  stormiest  part  of  his  career.  It  was  the  home  of  Mackenzie  and 
his  family  from  early  in  1836,  and  it  was  here  that  he  edited  "The  Consti- 
tution." Here  also  the  Rebellion  of  1837  was  planned.  On  the  collapse  of 
the  uprising  Mackenzie  fled  to  the  United  States.  The  family,  however, 
remained  in  the  house  for  a  short  time,  Mrs.  Mackenzie  joining  her  hus- 
band at  Navy  Island,  29th  Dec.,  1837.  The  York  street  house  was  for  a 
time  occupied  by  Andrew  Patton,  Barrack  Master,  and  father  of  the  late

time,  between  the  Green  Bush  Tavern,  Yonge  and  Shuter  streets,  and  the 
Red  Lion  Hotel,  Yorkville.     It  was  torn  down  to  make  room  for  the  old

erected  at  the  north-east  corner  of  Church  and  Shuter.  In  the  garden  at 
the  rear  Logan  cultivated  vegetables  and  flowers,  while  his  wife  sold  the 
produce  at  the  market.  Subsequently  the  cottage  fell  into  decay  and  was 
replaced  by  a  storey-and-a-half  building,  occupied  for  a  number  of  years  as 
a  saloon  by  John  Elliott.  This,  however,  was  demolished  many  years  ago

brick  building  in  York,  the  first  being  the  Parliament  buildings,  and  the 
second  the  St.  George,  or  Canada  Company  building,  n.e.  corner  King  and 
Frederick  streets.  The  residence  was  built  by  Rev.  John  Strachan,  first 
Anglican  Bishop  of  Toronto,  and  occupied  by  him  until  his  death  in  1867, 
then  being  rented  for  a  boarding  house.  About  1900  it  was  demolished  to 
make  way  for  warehouses.  Mr.  J.  Ross  Robertson  had  a  chair  made  of  the 
oak  threshold  of  the  Bishop's  home,  and  in  1904  presented  it  to  the  Uni- 
versity of  Trinity  College,  which  was  founded  by  Bishop  Strachan.  The 
chair  stands  in  the  Convocation  Hall  of  the  College.  Water  color.

Teraulay  streets,  and  erected  in  1827  by  John  Bird,  who  occupied  it  as  a 
store  and  residence.  After  Mr.  Bird's  death  the  property  became  a  tavern, 
and  was  kept  by  his  son,  Joseph,  for  some  years.  It  subsequently 
passed  through  various  hands,  and  finally  came  into  the  possession  of 
William  Charlton,  who  continued  the  business  until  about  1860.  After  his 
decease  his  widow  carried  it  on  for  two  years,  when  she  remarried  and 
transferred  the  property  to  James  Spence,  who  in  turn  conveyed  it  to

land  at  the  s.e.  cor.  Lot  (Queen)  and  Graves  (Simcoe)  streets.  Some  time 
afterwards  he  erected  the  frame  dwelling  shown  in  the  picture,  which,  for 
a  time,  was  the  residence  of  the  Rev.  Joseph  Hudson,  chaplain  to  the 
forces.  At  a  later  date  it  served  as  the  home  of  the  Rev.  John  Wenham, 
curate  of  St.  James'  Church  (Cathedral),  and  in  1849-51  was  occupied  by 
Mr.  Owen,  of  the  firm  of  Owen,  Miller  &  Mills,  King  street,  carriage  manu- 
facturers. About  1855  the  dwelling  was  converted  into  a  shop.  It  was

store.  Water  color  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size  5x7. 


In  1827  John  Doel,  an  Englishman  who  came  to  York  from  the  United 

States  in  1818,   erected  a  two-storey  frame  residence  at  the  north-west 

corner   of   Bay   and   Adelaide    streets.      At   the    rear    he    built    a    frame 

L"-shaped  structure  which  was  used  as  a  brewery  until  1847,  when  it 

was  burned.     Mr.  Doel  was  associated  with  the  leaders  of  the  Reform 

rty,  and  during  the  exciting  days  preceding  the  Rebellion  of  1837    the 

house  and  brewery  formed  the  principal  rendezvous  of  the  agitators.   Doel 

and  Mackenzie,  however,  disagreed  as  to  the  method  of  procedure,  and

Russell  Abbey,  as  the  charming  one-storey  frame  dwelling  was  known, 
was  built  in  1798,  near  the  bay  shore,  on  Palace  (Front)  street,  at  the 
foot  of  what  is  now  (1917)  Princess  street  (formerly  Princes).  Here  Mr. 
Russell,  who  was  Administrator  of  Upper  Canada  from  1796-99,  died  in 
1808.  The  residence  was  afterwards  for  many  years  occupied  by  his 
sister,  Miss  Elizabeth  Russell.  She  in  turn  willed  the  entire  property  of 
her  late  brother,  to  her  cousins,  the  daughters  of  Wm.  Willcocks,  one  of 
whom  was  the  wife  of  Dr.  William  Warren  Baldwin.  After  Miss  Russell's 
death  the  house  became  the  residence  of  Bishop  Macdonell,  and  then  ot 
Dr.  Bradley,  immigration  agent.  When  the  latter  vacated  it  a  negro  family 
named  Truss  came  into  possession,  carrying  on  a  shoemaking  business

"Petersfield,"  the  property  of  the  Hon.  Peter  Russell,  and  occupied  by 
Captain  John  Denison.  On  the  land  (part  of  Bellevue  square)  purchased 
by  the  younger  Denison,  "Bellevue"  was  built.  It  was  a  large,  comfortable 
house,  lying  far  back  from  Queen  street,  but  visible  from  it  through  the

the  old  residence.  Water  color.  Size  6x7. 

691 — BERKELEY  HOUSE,  TORONTO — Homestead  of  the  Small  fam-

originally  built  of  hewn  timber  by  Major  John  Small,  first  Clerk  of  Execu- 
tive Council,  U.C.,  and  was  one  of  the  earliest  dwellings  in  York  (Toronto). 
It  was  subsequently  re-constructed  by  Major  Small's  son,  Charles  Coxwell 
Small,  and  although  elevated  and  enlarged,  the  design  and  even  a  portion 
of  the  inner  substance  of  the  original  structure  was  preserved.  The  resi- 
dence, known  as  Berkeley  House,  was  later  converted  into  three  dwellings, 
the  central  one  containing  the  remains  of  the  original  log  house.  It  still

692— ONTARIO  HOUSE— North-west  corner  Church  and  Market 
(Wellington)  streets,  York  (Toronto) — In  1834  it  was  conducted  by  Wil- 
liam Campbell,  who  at  one  time  kept  the  North  American  Hotel,  Front 
street.  In  1845  the  Ontario  House  became  the  Wellington  Hotel,  with 
Russel  Inglis  as  proprietor.  It  is  said  that  the  first  room  William  Lyon 
Mackenzie  entered  on  his  return  to  Toronto  from  exile  was  the  private 
sitting-room  of  this  hostelry.  Under  Mr.  Inglis'  management  the  Welling- 
ton became  so  popular  that  he  was  forced  to  rent  the  two  upper  floors 
of  the  Coffin  House  Block,  at  the  gore  formed  by  Wellington,  Front  and 
Church  streets,  to  supply  adequate  accommodation  for  his  patrons.  After 
giving  up  the  Wellington,  Mr.  Inglis  for  a  long  time  conducted  the  Western 
Hotel,  north  side  of  Wellington,  between  Scott  and  Yonge  streets.  His 
former  hostelry  became  a  tenement  house  and  was  eventually  demolished

trance— The  St.  Lawrence  Market  was  first  opened  for  business  in  April, 
1851.  The  main  entrance  was  then  in  the  centre  of  the  frontage  on  King 
street,  and  consisted  of  a  corridor  with  a  line  of  shops  stretching  to  the 
east  and  west  on  "Both  sides  through  to  Front.  In  addition  there  was  a 
transverse  piazza,  one  hundred  feet  deep,  over  which,  on  the  first  floor, 
were  various  public  rooms.  In  1904  the  present  market  south  of  Front 
was  completed  and  the  lower  part  of  the  market  remodelled,  the  shops 



being  removed  and  made  into  an  arena.  In  1912  the  arena  was  altered  and 
portions  rented  on  the  east  and  west  sides  to  meat  companies,  and  used 
by  farmers'  wagons  on  market  days.  Water  color.  Size  5x6.  See  701-2. 

695.7_Market  Places  of  York  and  Toronto,  1803-1917. 

695— FIRST  MARKET  PLACE,  YORK  (TORONTO),  1803-31— On  the 
site  of  the  present  St.  Lawrence  Hall  and  Upper  Market.  The  first 
market,  which  was  established  by  Lieutenant-Governor  Peter  Hunter  in 
1803,  was  simply  wooden  shambles,  forty-five  feet  long  and  thirty  feet 
wide,  running  north  and  south,  and  situated  in  the  middle  of  the  block 
now  occupied  by  the  north  part  of  the  present  (1917)  St.  Lawrence  Market. 
In  1807  the  Market  Square  was  enclosed  on  the  east,  west  and  south  sides 
with  a  picketing  and  oak  ribbon,  and  in  1831  the  building  was  demolished.

696— SECOND  MARKET  PLACE,  YORK  (TORONTO),  1831-49— On 
the  north  part  of  the  block  facing  King  street,  and  now  (1917)  occupied 
by  the  St.  Lawrence  Hall  and  Upper  Market.  It  was  a  quadrangular  brick 
building,  which  was  completed  in  1833.  Around  all  four  sides  of  it, 
above  the  butchers'  stalls,  ran  a  wooden  gallery,  which  at  a  political  meet- 
ing in  1834  was  so  overcrowded  that  a  portion  of  it  fell,  resulting  in  loss 
of  life  and  severe  injuries  to  numbers  of  the  audience.  The  front  of  the 
building  was  destroyed  in  the  great  fire  of  1849,  and  this  led  to  the  de- 
molition of  the  entire  market.  Water  color  from  a  pen  drawing  made  in 
1848  by  Rev.  Dr.  Henry  Scadding.  Size  5x7. 

697— THIRD  MARKET  PLACE,  1851-1917— After  the  great  fire  ef 
1849,  in  which  the  front  portion  of  the  second  market  was  destroyed,  the 
present  (1917)  St.  Lawrence  Hall  and  Market  was  built,  occupying  the 
entire  square  bounded  by  King,  Jarvis,  Front  and  West  Market  streets. 
The  St.  Lawrence  Hall  was  from  its  erection  the  finest  hall  in  Toronto. 
Every  public  meeting,  concert,  oratorio,  ball,  bazaar,  minstrel  show,  soiree, 
panorama,  assembly  or  public  dinner,  down  to  1871,  was  held  in  this  hall. 
Great  singers  and  speakers  have  also  -been  heard  within  its  walls — Jenny 
Lind,  Mile.  Piccolomini,  Anna  Bishop,  Adelina  Patti,  Elihu  Burritt,  "the 
learned  blacksmith,"  Horace  Greeley,  D'Arcy  McGee,  Sir  John  A.  Mac- 
donald,  George  Brown,  Bayard  Taylor.  The  upper  market,  built  1902-3, 
in  rear  of  the  main  structure  on  King  street,  is  now  used  for  farmers' 
wagons,  while  the  butchers'  stalls  have  been  removed  to  the  new  or  Lower 
Market,  south  of  Front  street,  which  was  commenced  in  the  summer  of 
1899  and  completed  in  1901.  Water  color  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size  6x7. 

698— MCLEAN  HOMESTEAD,  YORK  (TORONTO)— Formerly  known 

as  Dunnstable.  About  1820  the  Hon.  John  Henry  Dunn,  Receiver-General 
of  Upper  Canada,  built  the  two-storey  red  brick  mansion  of  the  picture  at 
the  head  of  Catharine  street  (Richmond),  and  here  he  lived  until  the  death 
of  his  wife.  In  1837  Chief  Justice  McLean,  who  had  come  to  York  from 
Cornwall,  bought  the  residence,  occupying  it  until  his  death  in  1865,  when 
it  became  the  home  of  his  son,  Mr.  A.  G.  McLean.  In  1900  it 
was  demolished,  and  Catharine  street,  which  ran  along  the  south  side  of 
the  property,  was  opened  up,  connecting  Richmond  with  Spadina  avenue.

699— HOME  OF   MAJOR   HILLIER,  YORK    (TORONTO)— An  English 

rustic  cottage  at  the  north-east  corner  of  Bay  and  Front  streets.     Major 

llier,  who  was  attached  to  the  74th  Regiment,  was  aide-de-camp  and 

military  secretary  to  Sir  Peregrine   Maitland.     He  also   Belonged   to   the 

Masonic  Order,  being  a  well-known  member  of  St.  Andrew's  Lodge.     The 

J2;«  ??  Was  oriSinally  a  part  of  the  property  of  the  Hon.  Peter  Russell;  in 

Dr.  W.  Warren  Baldwin  erected  his  town  residence  on  the  site,  and 


this  dwelling  was  subsequently  conducted  as  a  private  hotel  by  Mrs.  John 
Ellah;  from  1863-4  it  was  used  as  a  military  hospital,  and  afterwards  as 
offices  for  the  Toronto,  Grey,  Bruce  and  Nipissing  Railroad.  Later  it  was 
the  site  of  a  large  Warehouse,  destroyed  in  the  great  fire  of  1904,  and  since 
that  date  has  been  vacant.  Water  color.  Size  4x7. 

TORONTO — About  1834  the  two-storey  brick  building  at  the  corner,  on 
part  of  the  McCutcheon  property,  was  erected  by  John  Wesley,  who  kept  a 
seed  store  there  for  several  years.  The  property  was  subsquently  pur- 
chased by  William  Reynolds,  a  baker.  Since  then  it  has  passed  through 
various  hands,  as  have  the  two  brick  buildings  south  of  and  adjoining  the 
corner,  also  erected  by  Mr.  Reynolds  about  1848.  In  1889  these  buildings 
were  demolished,  and  a  hotel  and  several  stores  now  (1917)  occupy  the 
site,  water  color.  Size  5x7. 

701— OLD  ST.  LAWRENCE  MARKET  ARCADE,  1851-1904— Looking 
north  from  Front  street.  One  of  the  most  attractive  features  of  the  old 
market  was  the  arcade,  two  hundred  feet  long  by  twenty  feet  wide.  On 
both  sides,  running  north  and  south  from  King  to  Front,  were  fruit  and 
fancy  shops  at  the  north  end,  and  butcher  shops  at"  the  south.  At  the 
Christmas  season  during  the  fifties  the  arcade  was  one  of  the  sights  of 
Toronto,  with  its  glittering  toy  stalls,  profusion  of  evergreens  and  well- 
stocked,  gaily  decorated  butcher  shops.  In  1904  the  old  market  was  con- 
verted into  an  arena,  and  is  now  used  for  farmers'  wagons  and  the  butcher 
shops  were  removed  to  the  new  building  south  of  Front.  Water  color.

703— RUSSELL'S  HOTEL — A  pioneer  Toronto  hostelry  at  the  north- 
east corner  of  Church  and  Colborne  streets.  In  the  early  days  there  stood 
at  this  corner  a  frame  hotel  kept  by  a  colored  man  named  Snow;  but 
about  1848  the  frame  building  was  demolished  and  a  brick  structure  erected 
by  Joshua  Beard,  a  one-time  Mayor  of  Toronto.  The  new  hotel  was  occu- 
pied successively  by  Snow  &  Wright,  Robert  Beard,  Azro  Russell  and 
John  Montgomery,  proprietor  of  the  famous  Montgomery's  Tavern  of 
Rebellion  times.  During  the  tenancy  of  Beard  and  Russell  the  upper 
floors  of  the  building  were  occupied  by  the  Masonic  and  Orange  Orders. 
Subsequent  to  Montgomery's  retirement  the  structure  was  converted  into 
stores.  Water  color.  Size  6x7.

Bishop  (the  name  having  been  Anglicized  in  Upper  Canada),  was  a  skilled 
French-Canadian  mechanic,  accounted  the  best  lock-maker  in  Canada.  It

years.  The  buildings  shown  are  William  Harris'  china  shop,  1851-5,  Angus 
Blue's  house,  in  rear  of  which  was  his  bath  house,  and  the  Racquet  Court, 
of  which  he  was  manager.  Mr.  Thomas  Lamb,  after  1858,  kept  the  Foun- 
tain restaurant  on  King  street  west.  Water  color.  Size  6x8. 


707— GLOBE  OFFICE,  TORONTO,  1853-60 — King  street  west,  on  the 
site  of  the  present  (1917)  Bank  of  Commerce.  The  building  was  origin- 
ally the  home  of  the  old  Commercial  Bank  of  the  Midland  District  (now 
the  Merchants'),  and  then  became  the  third  office  of  the  Globe.  The  first 
office  of  the  Globe  was  on  Yonge  street,  west  side,  next  door  to  its  present 
building.  The  second  office  was  over  the  Nordheimer  music  store,  King 
east.  The  fourth  is  on  the  south-west  corner  of  Yonge  and  Melinda  streets. 
During  the  Globe  regime  the  east  end  of  the  King  west  structure  was 
occupied  by  Angus  Dallas,  woodenware  dealer,  the  outbuilding  to  the  left, 
or  east,  by  L.  D.  Campbell,  an  American,  who  established  the  first  news 
depot  in  Toronto,  and  Wm.  Faulkner,  shoe  dealer.  The  store  to  the  west

708— GREENLAND  FISHERIES  TAVERN— North-west  corner  Front 
and  John  streets,  York  (Toronto).  The  tavern,  erected  in  1825,  was  con- 
ducted for  many  years  by  Edward  Graves  Simcoe  Wright,  who  was  the 
first  white  child  born  in  York,  and  who  afterwards  became  one  of  the  first 
aldermen  of  the  corporation,  when  the  town  of  York  became  the  City  of 
Toronto.  Subsequent  to  its  construction,  the  hostelry  was  renovated 
throughout  and  somewhat  enlarged.  It  was  latterly  known  as  the  Beau- 
champ  House.  riTl902  it  was  demolished,  the  site  now  being  part  of  the 
G.T.R.  freight  yards.  Water  color  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size  5x7. 

709— RED  LION  HOTEL,  YORK  (TORONTO)— A  rear  view  of  the  old 
building,  showing  the  yard  used  by  the  farmers  and  their  wagons  on  their 
way  to  and  from  the  city.  Water  color.  Size  5x8.  See  710,  716,  718. 

710— RED  LION  HOTEL,  YORK  (TORONTO)— On  the  east  side  of 
Yonge  street,  just  north  of  Bloor,  now  Nos.  749-63.  It  was  a  large,  white 
stuccoed  building,  originally  clap-boarded,  and  was  the  first  place  for  the 
accommodation  of  travellers  in  the  district,  subsequently  known  as  York- 
ville,  being  built  some  time  between  1808-10  by  Daniel  Tiers,  and  very 
popular  as  a  meeting  room  and  ball  room  for  more  than  a  quarter  of  a 
century.  The  old  hostelry  continued  its  hospitality  for  nearly  eighty  years, 
passing  through  many  hands  during  its  long  period  of  usefulness.  Water

711-14— Jails  of  York  and  Toronto,  from  1800-1917. 

711— FIRST  JAIL,  1800-24— Situated  on  the  south  side  of  King  street, 
at  the  corner  of  Leader  lane.  "It  was,"  says  Dr.  Scadding  in  "Toronto  of 
Old,"  "a  squat,  unpainted,  wooden  building  with  hipped  roof  concealed  from 
persons  passing  in  the  street  by  a  tall  cedar  stockade,  such  as  those  we 
see  surrounding  a  Hudson's  Bay  post  or  a  military  woodyard."  On  dif- 
ferent occasions  the  sheriff  complained  that  the  condition  of  the  building 
was  detrimental  to  the  health  of  the  persons  confined  there,  and  in  1824  a 
new  jail  was  built.  The  brick  buildings,  erected  about  1840,  now  (1917) 
occupy  the  site  of  the  first  jail,  as  does  Leader  lane,  which  runs  south 
from  King  street.  Water  color.  Size  4x7. 

712— SECOND  JAIL,  1824-40— A  plain,  substantial,  two-storeyed  red 
brick  building,  near  the  north-east  corner  of  King  and  Toronto  streets,  at 
what  would  now  be  the  corner  of  Toronto  and  Court  streets.  On  three 
sides  it  was  enclosed  by  a  fifteen-foot  picket  fence,  and  in  the  jail  yard  so 
formed  was  erected  the  gallows  on  which  Lount  and  Matthews  were  hanged 
in  1838.  The  gallows  stood  to  the  east  of  the  building,  and  just  about  thirty 
feet  south  of  the  south  line  of  the  present  Court  street.  A  Court  House  was 
also  built  in  1824,  the  corner-stones  of  bo-th  it  and  the  Jail  being  laid  by  the 
Lieut.-Governor  on  the  same  date.  The  former  stood  on  the  northwest 
corner  of  King  and  Church  streets,  about  a  hundred  feet  north  of  King  The 
i  stocks  stood  just  west  of  the  Court  House.  The  Jail  building  was 
remodelled,  and  is  now  (1917)  the  York  Chambers,  Toronto  and  Court 
streets.  Water  color  from  a  drawing  by  J.  G.  Howard  Size  5x7 


713 — THIRD  JAIL,  1840-60 — The  large,  new  jail,  built  of  Kingston 
grey  cut  limestone,  and  surrounded  by  a  stone  wall  about  twelve  feet  high, 
was  situated  on  Palace  street  (Front  east),  at  the  foot  of  Berkeley,  the  latter 
street  being  in  those  days  continued  down  to  the  waterside  in  a  narrow 
road.  It  was  almost  on  the  site  of  the  third  jail  that  the  first  frame  build- 
ings in  York  were  erected  before  the  end  of  the  eighteenth  century  for  the 
use  of  Parliament  and  the  Law  Courts.  These  buildings,  with  the  books, 
documents  and  records  contained  in  them,  were  destroyed  in  1813,  when 
the  town  was  captured  by  the  Americans.  Five  years  later  a  plain,  cubical, 
brick  block  was  erected  on  the  same  site  for  the  use  of  the  Legislature, 
but  this  was  accidentally  destroyed  by  fire  in  1824.  The  third  jail,  after 
being  superseded,  was  occupied  by  a  safe  manufacturing  company  for  a 
time,  later  being  purchased  by  the  Consumers'  Gas  Company  and  new 
buildings  erected  on  the  site.  Water  color.  Size  7x8. 

714 — FOURTH  JAIL,  1865-1917 — On  the  north  side  of  Gerrard  street 
east,  at  Riverdale  Park,  just  east  of  the  Don.  It  is  a  massive-looking 
structure  of  white  brick  and  cut  stone,  and  is  (1917)  still  in  use.  It  was  in  the 
process  of  erection  in  1858,  but  partly  burned  five  years  later,  before  being 
completed,  and  was  not  occupied  as  a  jail  until  1865.  Water  color.

1830-37 — Built  in  1830  by  the  late  Dr.  William  Warren  Baldwin,  surgeon-in- 
chief  of  the  military  forces  in  1812.  The  property  originally  belonged  to 
Hon.  Peter  Russell,  Administrator  of  Upper  Canada  on  Simcoe's  return  to 
England.  On  his  death  it  came  into  possession  of  his  sister.  The  estate 
finally  became  Dr.  Baldwin's,  through  his  wife  and  her  sister,  cousins  of 
Miss  Russell.  Soon  after  falling  heir  to  the  estate,  Dr.  Baldwin  laid  out 
Spadina  on  a  large  scale,  and  on  the  hill,  nearly  three  miles  from  the 
lake,  he  built  his  new  home.  The  house  was  destroyed  by  fire  in  1837  and 
rebuilt  the  following  year.  "Spadina"  is  an  Indian  word,  signifying  "A 
view  from  the  hill."  Water  color  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size  6x7.  See  720.

room. Water  color.  Size  4x7.  See  709,  710,  718. 

717— BALDWIN  RESIDENCE,  TORONTO,  1838— Finding  it  incon- 
venient at  certain  seasons  of  the  year  to  reside  at  "Spadina,"  Dr.  William 
Warren  Baldwin  erected  as  a  town  house  a  substantial  brick  mansion  at 
the  norith-east  corner  of  Front  and  Bay  streets,  on  the  site  of  the  pic- 
turesque old  cottage  occupied  by  Major  Hillier.  Hon.  Robert  Baldwin  also 
occupied  the  paternal  residence,  and  later  the  dwelling  became  in  turn 
Ellah's  Hotel,  a  military  hospital,  and  the  offices  of  the  Toronto,  Grey, 
Bruce  and  Nipissing  R.R.  It  was  demolished  about  1884.  A  large  ware- 
house stood  on  the  site  until  the  great  fire,  of  1904,  when  it  was  destroyed, 
and  up  to  1917  has  not  be«en  rebuilt.  Water  color  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size

718— RED  LION  HOTEL,  YORK  (TORONTO)— Ballroom  and  public 
room — The  great,  old-fashioned  assembly-room  was  a  favorite  social 
rendezvous  for  the  young  people  of  the  day.  It  was  in  this  room  that 
William  Lyon  Mackenzie  was  presented  with  a  cable  chain  and  medal  of 
gold,  Jan.  2nd,  1832,  by  his  admirers,  in  approbation  of  his  political  career.

719— SHOP  OF  PAUL  BISHOP,  TORONTO— It  was  a  large  frame 
building,  a  little  distance  back  from  the  street,  and  fronting  southward  on 
Duke,  at  the  north-east  corner  of  Duke  and  Caroline  (Sherbourne)  streets. 
Here  Bishop  plied  his  trade  as  a  blacksmith  for  many  years.  When  T.  D. 
Harris  came  into  possession  of  the  property  he  enlarged  and  remodelled 
the  shop,  moving  it  to  the  street  line  and  dividing  it  into  two  two-storey 
dwellings.  Water  color  by  D.  M.  G.  Whyte.  Size  6x8. 


1838-66 — Subsequent  to  the  death  of  Dr.  William  Warren  Baldwin,  "Spa- 
dina"  passed  into  the  hands  of  his  sons,  Hon.  Robert  Baldwin  and  Captain 
Augustus  Baldwin.  The  former  died  there  in  1858.  It  is  somewhat  of  a 
coincidence  that  Dr.  Baldwin  wished  to  establish  a  family  in  Canada 
whose  head  was  to  be  maintained  by  the  proceeds  of  an  entailed  estate,  and 
his  son,  Hon.  Robert  Baldwin,  carried  through  the  Legislature  of  Canada 
the  abolition  of  the  rights  of  primogeniture.  In  1866  the  property  was  pur- 
chased by  the  late  James  Austin,  president  of  the  Dominion  Bank  and  of 
the  Consumers'  Gas  Company.  Water  color.  Size  5x7.  See  715. 

721— GEORGE  RIDOUT'S  RESIDENCE,  1820— North-west  corner  of 
Dorset  and  Wellington  streets,  York,  (Toronto) — The  house,  in  its  day 
considered  a  very  stately  mansion,  was  built  by  Mr.  Ridout  in  the  centre 
of  a  large  block  of  beautifully  wooded  land.  On  Mr.  Ridout's  disposing  of 
the  property,  it  became  the  home  of  Bishop  Stewart,  second  bishop  of 
Quebec.  Later  Capt.  Philpotts,  R.B.,  Judge  Jones,  Dr.  Boys,  Bursar  ef 
King's  College,  and  Samuel  Sherwood,  City  Registrar,  lived  there.  The 
mansion  eventually  became  a  lodging  house,  and  in  1887  was  demolished. 
The  C.P.R.  freight  yards  now  occupy  the  site.  Water  color.  Size  5x7. 

722— HOLLAND  HOUSE,  TORONTO— South  side  of  Wellington  street 
west,  now  (1917)  No.  63.  Built  in  1831  by  the  Hon.  Henry  John  Boulton, 
and  named  after  Holland  House,  Kensington,  London,  Eng.,  where  the 
Hon.  Mr.  Boulton  was  born.  The  Toronto  mansion  was  a  large,  turreted, 
castle-like  building,  stuccoed  and  lined  in  imitation  of  brownstone.  Mr. 
Boulton  was  from  1831-2  Solicitor-General  for  U.C.,  and  in  1833  was  ap- 
pointed Chief  Justice  of  Newfoundland.  On  his  departure  from  Toronto, 
Holland  House  became  the  residence  of  Mr.  Truscott,  the  first  private 
banker  of  Toronto,  and  afterwards  of  the  Elmsley  and  Sherwood  families. 
It  was  then  sold  by  the  Boultons  to  Alexander  Manning,  ana  subsequently 
became  the  quarters  of  the  Reform  Club.  In  1904  it  was  demolished. 
When  the  Earl  and  Countess  Dufferin  were  in  Toronto  in  1872  they  stayed 
at  Holland  House.  Water  color  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size  5x7.  See  704. 

723— RESIDENCE  OF  JAMES  AUSTIN,  TORONTO— When  the  late 
Mr.  James  Austin  took  possession  of  "Spadina"  in  1866  the  property  in- 
cluded eighty  acres  of  land,  used  chiefly  for  farming.  The  house  was 
almost  entirely  demolished  and  rebuilt  on  the  old  foundations.  In  the 
eighties  Mr.  Austin  disposed  of  the  western  half  of  "Spadina,"  his  son,  A. 
W.  Austin,  and  daughter,  Mrs.  G.  A.  Arthurs,  inheriting  the  remainder.  Sir 
John  Eaton  now  (1917)  occupies  a  new  residence  on  the  site  of  Mrs. 
Arthurs'  home,  while  to  the  west  of  the  Austin  house,  enlarged  and  occu-

home  was  erected  by  Mr.  Robertson,  and  on  the  5th  September  formally 
transferred  to  the  trustees  of  the  Hospital  for  Sick  Children.  Since  that 
time  thousands  of  Ontario's  little  ones  have  been  placed  on  the  road  to

years,  and  then  Mr.  Colin  Skinner,  who  took  Mr.  John  Eastwood  into  part- 
nership; they  used  the  building  as  a  paper  mill.  It  is  said  that  the 
first  paper  in  Upper  Canada  was  made  in  this  mill  in  1826.  The  Flamboro' 
mill  also  claimed  the  prize  offered  by  the  Provincial  Government,  and  the 
claim  was  compromised  by  a  division  of  the  money.  In  1847  the  property 
passed  into  the  hands  of  the  Taylor  Bros.  During  their  time  it  was  twice 
destroyed  by  fire,  and  once  during  the  ownership  of  the  present  owner, 
Mr.  Robert  Davies.  The  walls,  which  were  of  stone,  stood,  however,  and 
a  new  roof  and  floors  made  the  building  as  it  was  first  built.  Water  color,

760— CANADIAN  (ROYAL)  INSTITUTE,  TORONTO— North-west  cor- 
ner of  Richmond  and  Berti  (Clare)  streets.  In  1849  a  number  of  gentle- 
men, chiefly  architects,  land  surveyors  and  civil  engineers,  met  in  the 
office  of  Kivas  Tully  to  consider  the  advisability  of  forming  an  organiza- 
tion which  would  unite  the  three  professions  throughout  the  country.  In 
1850  a  constitution  was  adopted,  Mr.  (Sir)  Sandford  Fleming  and  Mr.  E.  R. 
Passmore  being  the  leading  organizing  spirits.  From  1864-76  the  Cana- 
dian Institute  so  formed  met  in  the  building  shown  in  the  picture.  It  was 
built  in  1850  by  George  Bilton,  and  first  occupied  by  Dr.  Primrose,  who 
was  followed  by  Thos.  Haworth,  hardware  merchant.  In  1876  it  was  torn 
down  and  a  brick  building  erected,  which  was  used  by  the  institute  until 
1905.  When  the  latter  removed  to  its  present  (1917)  home,  198  College 
street,  in  order  to  make  its  valuable  library  more  accessible  to  the  Univer- 
sity professors  and  students,  the  old  property  was  sold  to  the  Sons  of 
England.  On  April  2nd,  1914,  the  institute  had  its  title  formally  changed 
to  "Royal  Canadian  Institute."  Water  color.  Size  4x7.

Adelaide  streets,  on  the  same  site  as  the  first  church,  burned  in  February, 
1855;  was  dedicated  26th  September,  1856.  It  had  a  spire  (its  predecessor 
having  had  a  tower)  which  was  blown  down  about  two  o'clock  on  the  after- 
noon of  the  12th  April,  1865,  in  a  terrific  wind  storm  that  swept  Toronto. 
The  spire  was  not  rebuilt,  but  replaced  by  the  lower  portion  being  made 
into  a  square  tower.  The  last  service  in  the  old  church  was  held  3rd 
Dec.,  1882,  and  the  following  March  the  congregation  moved  to  College 
street,  near  Elizabeth.  The  Bay  street  building  was  used  by  a  lithograph- 
ing company,  and  as  a  theatre,  until  1884.  It  was  then  demolished.  The 
site  is  now  (1917)  an  office  building.  Lithograph  in  color.  Size  11  x  15.

762— RESIDENCE  OF  T.  D.  HARRIS,  TORONTO— When  Duke  street  -• 
was  fashionable — In  1832,  Mr.  J.  S.  Howard,  at  that  time  postmaster  of 
York  (Toronto),  built,  as  a  residence  for  himself,  a  large  three-storey  red 
brick  building  on  the  north  side  of  Duke  street,  No.  28,  just  east  of  George 
street.  For  a  time  part  of  the  building  was  used  as  a  post  office.  Mr. 
Howard  vacated  about  1838,  and  Mr.  M.  Davidson  Murray  lived  there  until 
1845.  Later,  Mr.  T.  D.  Harris  occupied  the  residence,  which  was  one  of 
the  best  equipped  of  early  Toronto  homes.  Mr.  Harris  was  prominent  in 
civic  matters.  He  was  chief  engineer  of  the  fire  brigade,  1838-41;  carried 
on  the  leading  hardware  business  in  Toronto,  and  from  1870-2,  after  his  '

to  "Yonge  street,"  selecting. as  a  meeting  place  the  home  of  Bro.  Alfred 
Barrett,  which  was  used  as  a  tavern  and  frequented  by  farmers  on  their 
way  to  and  from  the  town.  It  is  not  improbable  that  the  anticipated 
trouble  with  the  United  States  had  something  to  do  with  the  removal  of 
the  lodge  from  York;  also  a  large  proportion  of  the  brethren  lived  on 
Yonge  street.  The  old  tavern  was  altered  and  improved  in  1840,  and  until 
1856  the  lodge  room  was  in  existence.  Now  (1917)  the  site  is  vacant.

1870— This  pretty  roughcast  residence  was  built  in  1851  by  the  late  James 
Bain,  bookseller,  who  died  in  1908.  It  stood  on  the  east  side  of  Sherbourne 
street  on  a  plot  of  ground  between  the  n.e.  and  s.e.  corners  of  Sherbourne 
street  and  the  present  Wilton  avenue.  Beech  street  (Wilton  avenue)  was 
extended  from  Seaton  to  Sherbourne,  according  to  a  plan  dated  1857,  and 
filed  in  the  registry  office.  The  property  for  this  extension  had  been  pur- 


chased,  one  parcel  from  James  Bain  on  13th  Oct.,  1855,  and  the  rest  from 
James  Humphrey  on  23rd  Nov.  of  the  same  year.  The  Bain  residence 
was  moved  about  50  feet  to  the  n.e.  corner  of  Beech  and  Sherbourne,  and 
was  occupied  by  Mr.  Bain  until  1900,  when  he  moved  to  Kew  Beach.  In 
1878  a  by-law  was  passed  changing  Crookshank  street,  which  ran  from 
Yonge  to  George  streets,  and  Beech  street,  running  east  from  Sherbourne, 
to  Wilton  avenue.  Wilton  crescent,  which  connected  Crookshank  and 
Beech  streets,  was  always  known  by  that  name.  Mr.  Bain  sold  the  re- 
mainder of  his  property  in  1906.  Three  years  later  the  house  was  demol- 
ished and  an  apartment  house  erected  on  the  site.  During  Mr.  Bain's  resi- 
dence in  the  old  house  the  garden  at  the  south  side  was  much  admired, 
for  he  was  a  master  florist  and  an  expert  in  horticulture.  Water  color.

1859,  between  the  trustees  of  the  University  and  the  Corporation  of  To- 
ronto, College  street  and  University  avenue  were*  protected  by  gates  to 
prevent  these  streets  from  being  used  as  public  thoroughfares.  With  the 
agreement  of  2nd  March,  1889,  however,  the  gates  were  removed  and  the 
two  main  approaches  to  Queen's  Park  dedicated  to  the  city  as  public 
streets.  Although  not  stipulated  in  the  agreement,  it  is  understood  that 
the  reserved  rights  of  the  University  apply  on  both  sides  of  University 
avenue,  from  Queen  to  Bloor  streets,  and  on  both  sides  of  College  street, 
from  Yonge  street  to  a  point  a  short  distance  east  of  Beverley  street.  In

reproduced  in  oils  and  presented  to  the  Corporation  of  Toronto.  During 
his  residence  in  Niagara,  from  1856,  Granger  did  many  pictures  of  the  old

No.  3  Company,  and  Private  Christopher  Alderson,  of  No.  7  Company,  were 
buried  in  St.  James'  Cemetery,  Toronto,  5th  June,  1866.  The  bodies  of 
Ensign  Malcolm  McEachern,  No.  5  Company,  and  Private  W.  F.  Tempest,

polis. Rev.  H.  J.  Grasett,  assisted  by  Rev.  Alexander  Williams,  chaplain 
of  the  forces,  officiated.  The  remains  were  escorted  to  the  cemetery  by

George  T.  Denison  was  in  command.  Gen.  Napier  and  Lieut.-Col.  Durie 
were  present.  The  engagement  between  the  Fenians  and  the  Canadians, 
was  sharp  and  severe  while  it  lasted,  until  finally  the  latter  were  forced 
to  retire,  hotly  pursued  to  the  Ridgeway  station  by  the  Fenians.  In  the 
years  that  have  elapsed  blame  for  the  mistake  in  command,  which  for  a

ing on  the  King  street  site,  but  about  1829  had  the  old  building  torn  down 
and  on  almost  the  exact  site  erected  a  more  commodious,  two-storey  brick 
residence.  On  Dr.  Stoyell's  death  the  house  was  occupied  by  a  Roman 
Catholic  priest  until  its  purchase  by  Mr.  Thomas  Helliwell,  who  made  it 
his  residence.  The  Victor  Inn,  No.  282A  King  street  east,  is  now

facture of  soap,  at  the  foot  of  Yonge  street  on  the  east  side,  on 
property  purchased  from  Judge  Sherwood  and  Peter  McDougall.  Owing 
to  the  fact  that  almost  the  whole  property  was  land  covered  with  water, 
the  soap  works  had  to  be  built  on  cribs  sunk  with  stone.  On  the  death  of 
the  first  owner,  in  1861,  the  business  was  carried  on  by  Robert  Freeland,  a 
son,  until  the  demolition  of  the.  building  in  1865  to  make  room  for  the

of  Chief  Justice  Hagarty.  Mr.  Crawford  resided  there  until  his  appoint- 
ment as  Lieutenant-Governor  of  Ontario,  1873,  and  on  his  removal  to 
Government  House  transferred  the  old  mansion  to  the  Provincial  Govern- 
ment. For  some  years  the  property  was  used  as  the  Attorney-General's 
office  and  immigration  bureau.  It  was  demolished  in  1906.  The  Randall-

a  time,  and 'afterwards  the  Clifton  Hotel.  It  was  a  favorite  stopping-place 
for  farmers  on  their  way  to  town  from  the  west  and  north-west.  The  land

Lake  Shore  road.  On  the  south  side  of  the  road  (left  of  picture)  is  Nurse's 
Hotel,  built  by  Charles  Nurse,  1874-5,  and  destroyed  by  fire  in  1912.  The 
bridge  shown  spanning  the  Humber  was  erected  in  1874,  and  in  that  year 
also  Mr.  O.  L.  Hicks  built  boathouses  shown,  which  from  time  to  time  were 
torn  down  and  enlarged.  In  1893  Mr.  Hicks  sold  out  to  his  brother,  Samuel 
Hicks,  who  five  years  later  transferred  them  to  Capt.  Robert  Maw.  A 
number  of  years  ago  the  present  (1917)  owner,  Mr.  I.  N.  Devins,  pur- 
chased them.  In  the  distance  to  the  right  is  seen  the  peak  of  the  hotel 
built  by  John  McDowell,  1852-3.  On  McDowell's  death,  in  1870,  the  hostelry 
came  into  the  possession  of  his  son,  William,  and  since  has  passed  through 
many  hands.  The  G.T.R.  acquired  the  property  in  1911.  The  railway  and 
other  improvements  have  entirely  changed  the  appearance  of  this  vicinity.

ated at  the  south-west  corner  of  King  and  Simcoe  streets,  being  originally 
the  home  of  Chief  Justice  Blmsley,  and  subsequently  purchased  by  the 
Government.  The  design  shown  was  made  in  1833  by  John  G.  Howard, 
the  well-known  Toronto  architect,  and  was  intended  "for  the  information 
of  Sir  John  Colborne  to  shew  the  impropriety  of  spending  money  in  repair- 
ing the  old  Government  House."  The  site  suggested  was  on  "the  military 
reserve  to  the  west  of  Peter  street,  on  Front  street,"  and  the  estimated 
cost  of  erection  was  £50,000.  The  structure  shown  was  never  erected.

839— HOWARD  TOMB  AND  CAIRN— North  view.  In  a  reserved  por- 
tion of  High  Park,  Toronto,  Mr.  J.  G.  Howard  erected  a  tomb  and  cairn  in 
memory  of  his  wife,  whose  death  occurred  in  1877.  He  himself  was  also 
buried  there  in  1890.  The  cairn  is  situated  a  little  to  the  north-west  of 
Colborne  Lodge,  at  the  summit  of  a  picturesque  ravine.  It  is  constructed 
of  granite  boulders  bedded  in  Portland  cement,  topped  with  a  double 
pedestal  which  terminated  in  a  Maltese  cross.  On  the  north  side  of  this 
bit  of  consecrated  ground  is  a  portion  of  the  iron  railing  which  for  one 
hundred  and  sixty  years  surrounded  St.  Paul's  Cathedral,  London,  Eng.

843— GAOL  AND  COURT  HOUSE,  BROCKVILLE,  ONT.— Erected  in 
1841-3  from  a  plan  by  J.  G.  Howard,  the  well-known  Toronto  architect. 
Mr.  Howard  also  superintended  the  building  of  the  structure,  which  re- 
placed the  second  Brockville  Court  House,  a  brick  edifice  erected  in  1824. 
The  naming  of  the  figure  of  Justice,  which  surmounts  the  present  building, 
is  an  amusing  incident.  Among  the  crowd  assembled  to  see  the  figure 
raised,  were  Major  Alexander  Grant,  a  man  about  6  ft.  5  in.  in  height,  and 
otherwise  large  in  proportion,  and  Paul  Glassford,  small  of  stature,  who 
had  been  chairman  of  the  Building  Committee.  The  former  was  a  practi- 
cal joker  and  liked  nothing  better  than  to  have  a  joke  on  Glassford.  He 
laughingly  called  the  crowd's  attention  to  the  difference  in  size  between 
Mr.  Glassford  and  his  "child."  But,  when  the  figure  was  in  position,  Mr. 
Glassford,  in  response  to  the  cry,  "name,  name,"  looked  at  it,  then  at 
Major  Grant,  and,  touching  his  hat,  said,  "Her  .name  is  Sally  Grant."  The 
joke  was  turned  on  the  notorious  joker,  and  through  the  heat  of  summer 
and  snows  of  winter  "Sally  Grant"  has  held  the  scales  of  justice  on 
Brockville's  Court  House  since  1845.  Water  color  from  original,  by  J.  G.

844— TORONTO  BAY— From  Browne's  Wharf,  1835— The  wharf,  which 
was  owned  by  James  Browne,  a  prominent  Toronto  business  man  and 
wharfinger,  was  situated  between  Church  and  Scott  streets,  and  was  a 
landing  place  for  the  Royal  Mail  steamers.  This  view  shows  a  typical 
winter  scene  on  the  bay  in  the  thirties.  At  the  west  end  of  the  peninsula, 
now  Toronto  Island,  is  the  lighthouse,  while  at  the  east  end  are  some

849-58— Theatres  of  York  and  Toronto,  1820-74. 

849— FIRST  THEATRE,  1820-29— The  first  theatrical  performance  in 
York  was  given  in  the  ball  room  of  Frank's  Hotel,  a  two-storey  frame 
building  on  the  north-west  corner  of  West  Market  street  and  Market  lane 


(Colborne  street).  Mr.  Allan  Macnab,  afterwards  Sir  Allan,  was  one  of 
the  amateur  performers  in  the  pioneer  theatre,  acquitting  himself  so  well 
that  he  was  seriously  advised  to  become  a  professional  actor.  The  play- 
house, although  its  appointments  were  of  the  most  unpretentious  character, 
was  very  popular.  Water  color,  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size  4x4. 

850— SECOND  THEATRE,  1829-34— On  the  north  side  of  Colborne 
street,  west  of  the  St.  Lawrence  Market.  It  was  a  two-storey  frame  build- 
ing, the  ground  floor  of  which  was  used  as  a  shop,  while  the  upper  part 
was  fitted  up  as  a  theatre  about  1829.  Performances  were  given  here  by 
a  local  amateur  club.  Water  color,  by  F.  V.  Poole.  Size  3^x4. 

851— THIRD  THEATRE,  1834-7— South  side  King  street,  west  of 
Jordan,  on  part  of  site  of  Bank  of  Commerce.  It  was  a  frame  building 
40  x  60,  erected  in  1818,  by  Mr.  Fetch,  as  the  first  place  of  public  worship 
of  the  Wesleyan  Methodists  in  York.  In  the  same  building  where  the 
eloquence  of  early  Methodist  ministers  resounded,  playgoers  of  York  also 
attended  ere  long,  for  on  the  completion  of  the  Adelaide  Street  Methodist 
church,  Waugh  Bros.,  confectioners  on  King  street,  obtained  possession 
of  the  old  chapel  and  fitted  it  up  as  a  place  of  amusement.  The  first  repre- 
sentation given  here  was  a  panorama  of  the  "Burning  of  Moscow,"  exhibited 
in  the  latter  part  of  1834.  Water  color,  by  J.  W.  Cotton.  Size  5x7. 

852— FOURTH  THEATRE,  1834-8— From  time  to  time  theatrical  per- 
formances were  given  in  a  barn-like  frame  building,  some  sixty  feet  long, 
situated  on  the  north  side  of  Front  street,  east  of  Church.  There  was  no 
gallery,  but  the  ground  floor  seated  an  audience  of  between  two  and  three 
hundred.  The  appointments  of  the  place  were  of  the  most  primitive  sort, 
candles  being  the  illuminants;  nevertheless  the  acting  was  at  times  very 
Good.  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Thorne,  who  played  comedy  here,  were  favorites  and 
always  drew  full  houses.  Water  color.  Size  3^  x4. 

853— FIFTH  THEATRE,  1836-40— On  the  north  side  of  King  street, 
near  York,  on  the  lot  adjoining  the  Shakespeare  Hotel,  n.e.  corner  of  King 
and  York.  The  Theatre  Royal,  as  the  new  playhouse  was  named,  was  of  a 
more  pretentious  character  than  its  predecessors.  It  was  a  large  frame 
structure,  erected  shortly  before  the  Mackenzie  Rebellion  of  1837,  and  was 
originally  a  cabinet  or  carpenter  workshop.  The  seats  were  arranged  in 
tiers,  in  much  the  same  fashion  as  they  are  at  the  present  day.  The 
popular  Thornes  graced  the  boards  at  this  theatre  also.  In  the  days  of  the 
old  Royal  ladies  had  not  begun  to  frequent  theatres  much.  Water  color,  by 
F.  V.  Poole.  Size  5x7. 

854— SIXTH  THEATRE,  1841-3— This  theatre,  known  as  Deering's, 
was  owned  by  the  then  proprietor  of  the  Ontario  House.  It  was  situated 
on  the  east  side  of  Scott,  and  extended  from  Front  to  Wellington  streets, 
the  main  entrance  being  on  Front  street.  The  building,  which  was  of 
frame,  was  well  patronized,  but  its  existence  as  a  playhouse  was  short.  It 
was  used  subsequently  as  an  immigration  office  and  later  became  a 
tavern.  Water  color.  Size  5x7. 

855— SEVENTH  THEATRE,  1840-50— On  the  west  side  of  William  street, 
above  Queen.  A  company  of  amateurs,  notable  among  them  being  Alex- 
ander Jacques,  printer,  fitted  up  an  old  barn  for  theatrical  performances, 
giving  various  plays  there  for  about  four  years.  This  theatre  had  its  in- 
ception in  an  old  barn  on  Colborne  street,  near  the  corner  of  Leader  lane, 
owned  by  Mr.  John  Munn,  but  this  building  was  destroyed  by  fire,  and  the 
company  had  to  seek  quarters  elsewhere.  From  1845  the  William  street 
theatre  was  used  for  local  negro  minstrel  shows.  Water  color.  Size  5x7. 


856— EIGHTH  THEATRE,  1849-53— This  theatre,  a  frame  building, 
about  seventy  feet  long,  and  having  a  lean-to  at  the  south  end  to  make 
room  for  the  stage,  had  been  used  as  a  coach  and  guard  house  for  Govern- 
ment House.  It  was  situated  on  the  south  side  of  King  street  west,  near 
the  ravine  or  creek  that  at  one  time  crossed  between  Simcoe  and  John 
streets,  and  was  managed  by  T.  P.  Besnard,  subsequently  manager  of  the 
Royal  Lyceum.  A  number  of  performances  were  given  in  this  building 
by  the  Garrison  amateurs;  but  it  never  became  popular,  being  too  far 
from  the  town  of  those  days.  Water  color.  Size  5x7. 

857— NINTH  THEATRE,  1 848-73— Known  as  the  Royal  Lyceum, 
south  side  King  street,  between  Bay  and  York.  It  was  built  by  John 
Ritchey,  the  first  occupant  being  John  S.  Potter.  About  1850  T.  P.  Besnard 
undertook  the  management  of  the  house.  He  persuaded  John  Nickinson 
and  his  daughters  to  come  over  from  Buffalo.  A  managerial  partnership 
was  entered  into  between  Mr.  Besnard  and  Mr.  Nickinson,  the  latter  in 
1853  assuming  sole  management  of  the  Royal  Lyceum,  which  he  consider- 
ably altered  and  improved.  He  it  was  who  induced  the  great  actors  of  the 
day  to  visit  Toronto.  In  1872  Mrs.  Morrison  (Charlotte  Nickinson)  took 
the  management  of  the  Lyceum.  About  a  year  later  the  building  was 
burned,  but  was  rebuilt.  During  Mrs.  Morrison's  management  many  stars 
played  here.  Water  color  by  J.  W.  Cotton.  Size  5x7. 

858— TENTH  THEATRE,  1874— North  side  King  street  west,  between 
Bay  and  York,  now  (1917)  Nos.  90-4,  about  a  hundred  feet  back  from  the 
street.  It  was  reached  by  a  passageway  nearly  opposite  that  leading  to 
the  Royal  Lyceum.  The  playhouse  shown,  in  which  were  seen  some  good 
performances,  was  known  as  the  Queen's  Theatre.  Tom  C.  King,  a  great 
Macbeth,  played  there  in  tragedy.  Water  color.  Size  5x7. 

859— WELLS  RESIDENCE,  TORONTO— The  comfortable,  old- 
fashioned  residence  on  the  high  ground  overlooking  Davenport  road,  just 
north-east  of  Bathurst,  was  erected  by  Col.  Joseph  Wells,  of  the  43rd  Mon- 
mouthshire Regiment,  and  a  veteran  of  the  Peninsular  War.  It  was  built 
on  the  site  of  a  smaller  dwelling  purchased  by  Colonel  Wells  in  1820,  and, 
after  his  retirement  from  the  army,  he  lived  here  until  his  death  in  1853. 
Until  1873  Colonel  Frederick  Wells,  a  son,  occupied  the  residence,  which 
afterwards  passed  into  the  hands  of  the  second  occupant's  daughter,  Mrs. 
De  Pencier.  Water  color.  Size  5x7. 

860— AMERICAN  HOTEL,  TORONTO,  1 841 -89— About  1840  Mr. 
Rennie  purchased  the  north-east  corner  of  Front  and  Yonge  streets,  form- 
erly owned  by  the  late  Chief  Justice  Scott,  erecting  thereon  a  brick 
building.  It  was  known  for  many  years  as  the  American  Hotel,  and  was 
one  of  the  best-known  hostelries  in  Canada  until  its  demolition  in  1889  to 
make  room  for  the  Board  of  Trade  building.  When  Charles  Dickens 
visited  Toronto  in  1842  he  was  a  guest  in  this  house.  Mr.  Pearson,  an 
American,  was  the  popular  landlord  for  many  years,  and  he  was  succeeded 
Ly  the  late  David  Walker,  before  the  days  of  the  Walker  House.  Pen  draw-

861— MAIN  STREET,  WESTON,  1908— Looking  west.  The  town, 
which  is  situated  on  the  Humber  River,  several  miles  north-west  of  the 
City  of  Toronto,  was  founded  by  the  Government  in  1813.  This  view  shows 
the  present  Eagle  House,  built  in  1870  by  the  late  John  Eagle.  It  was 
formerly  known  as  Bellis'  Hotel.  West  of  the  Eagle  House  is  the  Assembly 
Room,  erected  1849-50.  Pen  drawing,  colored.  Size  5x7. 


1857— This  was  one  of  the  prettiest  stations  on  the  old  Northern  Railway, 
now  the  Grand  Trunk.    It  stood  almost  in  the  woods  when  it  was  built  in 


1857,  and  a  couple  of  miles  outside  the  then  city  limits  of  Toronto.  To-day, 
however,  commerce  has  made  sad  havoc  with  the  beautiful  surroundings 
of  nearly  sixty  years  ago,  for  the  station  is  now  (1917)  in  the  city  limits, 
on  the  north  side  of  Davenport  road.  It  faces  west,  and  Station  street 
runs  north  and  south  behind  the  building,  while  to  the  north  is  St.  Clair

TORONTO,  1881 — An  old-time  business  row — These  buildings,  originally 
of  frame,  but  in  later  years  roughcast,  were  all  erected  between  1840-50, 
and  in  1917  some  of  those,  from  389  to  367,  are  still  standing.  The  Forum

866— HOME  OF  DAVID  WILLIAMSON— An  East  End  landmark  of 
Toronto — Typical  workingman's  home  of  the  day.  It  was  situated  at  the 
north-east  corner  of  South  Park  (now  Eastern  avenue)  and  Trinity  street, 
and  was  occupied  by  David  Williamson,  known  as  "Long  Davy,"  a  carter, 
who  worked  for  ,Gooderham  &  Worts.  Williamson  was  accidentally  killed 
many  years  ago  at  the  Pape  avenue  crossing  of  the  G.T.R.  The  old  dwelling

formerly  of  the  Queen's  Rangers,  and  father  of  the  eminent  Sir  Allan 
Napier  MacNab,  first  Queen's  Counsel  in  Canada,  lived  for  some  years 
after  leaving  Niagara,  and  here  also  the  future  Sir  Allan  spent  the  greater 
part  of  his  early  days.  Water  color.  Size  5x8. 

868— MEAD'S  HOTEL,  TORONTO  ISLAND,  1882— About  1850  Reuben 
Parkinson,  a  carriage  builder,  built  a  hotel  at  Maskelonge  Point  (Mugg's 
Landing),  Toronto  Island,  moving  it  some  three  years  later  to  the  west 
side  of  the  Privat  Hotel  grounds.  This  hotel  was  washed  away,  and  about 
1859  Mrs.  Parkinson  erected  a  hostelry  on  what  is  now  part  of  Island 
Park.  In  1873  Mrs.  Parkinson  assigned  her  lease  to  Robert  Mead,  and  on 
the  latter's  death  the  business  was  carried  on  by  his  widow.  In  1887  the 
city  purchased  Mrs.  Mead's  holdings,  consisting  of  twelve  acres,  and  incor- 
porated them  in  the  park.  The  wharf  shown  ran  in  a  northwesterly  direc- 
tion, into  the  bay,  a  distance  of  283  feet,  the  end  being  opposite  the  ex- 
tremity of  the  present  (1917)  Island  ferry.  Water  color  by  W.  J.  Thomson.

870— RITCHEY  TERRACE,  TORONTO— North  side  of  Adelaide,  near 
York  street.  In  1856  John  Ritchey  erected  the  six  fine  white  brick  houses 
known  as  Ritchey  Terrace,  adjoining  his  own  residence.  Some  years  ago 
the  dwellings  we»e  remodelled  and  are  now  (1917)  used  as  factories  and 
warehouses,  Nos.  112-22.  The  walls,  ceilings,  roof  joists,  doors  and  stair- 
ways have  stood  the  test  of  time  so  well  that  they  will  bear  the  weight  of 
machinery  as  present-day  residences  will  not  do.  Only  one  of  the  houses 
has  been  torn  down,  its  site  being  occupied  by  the  factory  of  Douglas 
Brothers,  No.  124  Adelaide  street.  John  Ritchey  was  the  builder  who 
erected  the  spire  of  the  first  St.  Paul's  church,  Bloor  street,  and  the  original 
row  of  brick  buildings  on  the  east  side  of  Bay,  between  Melinda  and

873— LAMBTON  FLOUR  MILLS,  1843— At  Lambton  Mills,  on  the 
Humber;  the  second  erected  in  Toronto  Township.  The  original  mills, 
which  were  very  primitive,  being  almost  entirely  of  wood  with  an  under- 
shot wheel,  were  the  property  of  Thomas  Cooper,  who  at  one  time  owned 
a  wharf  in  Toronto.  In  1843  they  were  purchased  by  Mr.  (Sir)  William 
Pearce  Rowland,  and  practically  rebuilt  by  him.  Ten  years  afterwards  Mr. 
Peleg  Rowland  entered  the  business,  which  was  conducted  under  the  firm 
name  of  P.  &  W.  P.  Rowland.  Two  years  later  Mr.  F.  A.  Rowland  purchased 
Sir  W.  P.  Rowland's  interest,  and  the  firm  name  became  P.  &  F.  A.  Rowland. 
The  senior  member  died  in  1882  and  the  mills  were  continued  by  Mr.  F.  A. 
Rowland  until  his  death  in  1885.  The  first  purchaser  and  Thomas  Elliott 
succeeded  to  the  business  the  following  year,  the  firm  being  then  known 
as  Rowland  and  Elliott.  In  1895  Mr.  Elliott  purchased  his  partner's  interest, 
but  kept  the  old  firm  name.  The  property  was  sold  in  1909  to  Mr.  Home 
Smith,  and  the  next  year~  the  business  passed  into  the  hands  of  Mr.  H. 
Phillips.  The  old  mill  had  been  converted  by  Mr.  Home  Smith  into  a.

the  only  building  remaining,  is  shown  in  picture),  a  range  of  small  frame 
buildings  along  Duchess  street,  where  the  malt  was  ground  in  a  handmill, 
and  a  row  of  arches  dug  in  the  bank,  finished  with  masonry  and  covered 
with  earth.  These  arches,  which  extended  fifty  feet  along  the  south  side 
of  the  lot,  were  used  for  storing  the  beer  and  fermenting  tubs.  Just  south 
of  the  granary,  on  Sherbourne  street,  was  the  entrance  to  the  brewery  yard. 
The  property  passed  through  various  hands  during  its  long  existence.  Dr. 
Thos.  Stoyell  took  it  over  in  1822,  but  only  retained  it  for  two  or  three 
years.  John  Doel,  prior  to  the  erection  of  the  brewery  adjoining  his  housef 
corner  Bay  and  Adelaide  streets,  carried  on  the  Sherbourne  street  business. 
The  granary,  years  later,  was  used  as  a  storehouse  by  John  Walz  &  Co.,

and  was  organized  on  the  principle  of  the  Mechanics'  Institutes  of  Edin- 
burgh and  London.  "The  object  of  this  society,"  the  organizers  announced,

members  in  the  various  branches  of  study  and  for  conversation  on  subjects 
embraced  by  this  constitution  from  which  all  discussion  on  political  or 
religious  matters  is  to  be  carefully  excluded."  The  first  meetings  of  the 
Institute  were  held  in  the  old  Masonic  Hall,  on  Colborne  street,  near 
Church.  Later  the  police  building  on  Court  street  was  used.  About  1856,

of  the  old  site.  The  water  shown  in  the  foreground  has  been  cleaned  and 
dredged,  and  is  now  used  as  a  waterway  for  boats.  In  the  early  days  if  the 
weather  was  bad  and  the  bay  could  not  be  crossed  by  boats,  Ward  would 
hitch  his  horse  to  a  little  waggon  and  drive  around  the  east  end  of  the 
peninsula  (now  Toronto  Island)  and  by  way  of  Woodbine  avenue  reach  the

1792-1917 — The  Home  District  was  formerly  Nassau,  Que.,  constituted  by 
Lord  Dorchester's  Proclamation  of  24th  July,  1788.  In  1792  the  Home  Dis- 
trict was  organized  and  described  as  being  between  the  Bay  of  Quinte  and 
Long  Point,  Lake  Erie.  D.  W.  Smith,  in  his  "Gazetteer  of  the  Province  of" 
Upper  Canada,"  1813,  says,  with  regard  to  the  district,  that  it  "Is  now' 


bounded  easterly  by  a  line  running  northward  from  between  Whitby  and 
Darlington  townships,  on  the  Lake  Ontario,  to  Talbot  River,  and  from 
thence  to  the  Lake  Nipissing,  westerly  by  the  London  district,  and  on  the 
south  by  the  district  of  Niagara  and  the  Lake  Ontario."  From  time  to 
time  the  union  of  the  various  counties  was  dissolved,  Simcoe  leaving  in 
1843,  Ontario  in  1853,  and  Peel  in  1867,  and  independent  corporations 
formed,  until  in  1887  York  and  Toronto  separated,  with  Mr.  Frederick

The  artist  chose  a  pretty  subject  when  he  selected  a  spot  near  the  ravine 
drive,  RoSedale,  where  a  bridge,  which  crosses  Price's  Creek,  leads  the 
pedestrian  up  the  road  to  Toronto  Lacrosse  Grounds.  The  picture  shows 
at  the  left  hand  corner  the  site  of  Price's  old  mill,  and  its  water  wheel, 
just  east  of  where  Roxborough  street  turns  east  to  descend  Mather's  Hill. 
The  creek  was  called  Price's  because  it  ran  through  the  grounds  of  the  late 
Hon.  James  Hervey  Price,  north  of  the  Toronto  Waterworks  Reservoir, 
crossing  Yonge  street  at  Mount  Pleasant  Cemetery,  and  then  finding  its

a  General  Hospital  was  built  in  York  from  funds  supplied  by  the  Loyal  and 
Patriotic  Society  of  Upper  Canada.  It  was  a  large,  two-storey,  brick  struc- 
ture, situated  at  the  north-west  corner  of  King  and  John  streets.  At  a 
subsequent  date  two  other  buildings,  in  the  rear  of  the  main  structure, 
were  added  for  fever  patients.  After  the  Houses  of  Parliament  were 
burned  in  1824  the  Legislature  met  in  the  hospital  until  1828,  and  from 
L856-9  it  was  used  as  Government  offices.  It  was  then  unoccupied  for 
several  years,  and  in  1862  torn  down  and  replaced  by  a  row  of  brick 
dwellings.  These  were  converted  into  the  Arlington  Hotel,  which  still

dwelling  was  the  home  of  John  Bright,  a  veteran  of  the  War  of  1812,  and 
at  the  time  of  his  death,  in  1885,  the  oldest  inhabitant  of  Toronto.  Early 
in  life  he  acquired  the  plot  of  land  on  the  north-west  corner  of  Yonge 
street,  which  he  afterwards  traded  for  the  lot  on  which  the  house  shown 
in  the  picture  was  built.  Water  color  by  J.  W.  Cotton.  Size  5x7. 

910— KNOX,  OR  TORONTO  ACADEMY— It  was  a  frame  structure  at 
the  rear  of  the  third  home  of  Knox  College,  now  (1917)  the  site  of  the 
Queen's  Hotel,  Front  street  west,  and  was  intended  as  preparatory  for 
Knox  College.  In  1846  the  first  principal  of  the  academy  was  appointed  in 
the  person  of  the  Rev.  Alexander  Gale,  an  eminent  Presbyterian  clergy- 
man, who  afterwards  kept  a  school  at  Logie  Farm,  Cook's  Mills,  six  miles- 
south-east  of  Hamilton,  for  many  years.  When  Knox  College  was  removed 
to  Elmsley  Villa  thelicademy  building  was  moved  still  further  to  the  rear

now  (1917)  stand,  the  former  on  what  was  known  as  McGill  Square,  which 
was  bounded  by  Church,  Queen,  Shuter  and  Bond  streets.  In  this  square 
Capt.  McGill  built  the  residence  shown  in  picture.  For  a  long  period  it  was 
occupied  by' Mr.  McCutcheon,  who,  in  accordance  with  his  uncle's  (Peter 
McGill)  will,  assumed  the  name  of  McGill.  Further  north,  running  east  from 
Yonge  street,  is  McGill  street,  named  after  the  original  owner  of  the  pro-

firm  of  Bell  &  Crowther,  and  a  director  of  the  Don  &  Danforth  Road  Co. 
He  was  the  owner  of  the  property  on  the  west  side  of  Don  street,  facing 
the  river,  and  was  the  moving  spirit  in  having  the  bridge  erected.  The 
building,  with  the  smoke  stack,  to  the  right,  was  William  Parsons'  oil 
refinery,  No.  9  Don  street,  now  (1917)  the  site  of  the  Kemp  Mfg.  Company.

tentious, one-and-a-half-storey,  low  dwelling  in  1840,  clap-boarding  it  a  few 
years  later.  There  is  a  tradition  which  fixes  the  date  of  its  erection  at  or 
about  the  same  time  as  that  of  Castle  Frank,  one-time  residence  of 
Governor  Simcoe.  Captain  Sparks,  a  Scotsman,  emigrated  to  Canada  in 
1818,  and  at  an  early  age  began  work  as  a  sailor  on  Lake  Ontario,  continu- 
ing that  calling  until  his  retirement.  In  his  day  he  commanded  many  lake

until  his  death  in  1860;  and  toward  the  end  of  1855  his  brother  migrated 
to  Bentinck  Township,  County  Grey.  When  the  brothers  left  the  Island 
they  were  succeeded  by  John  Quinn;  but  the  site  on  which  their  house-

of  Physicians  and  Surgeons,  who  installed  offices  therein.  It  was  demol- 
ished in  1886  to  make  room  for  a  new  building,  which  was  occupied  by  the

a  chain  attached  to  a  staple  driven  into  the  tree,  to  which  horses  were 
tethered.  The  chain  was  about  a  foot  long  when  placed  there  about  fifty 
years  ago.  To-day  the  tree  has  grown  round  all  the  links  save  one,  which

923— WRECK  OF  THE  "MONARCH"— The  disaster  occurred  off  Toronto 
Island  about  five  o'clock  in  the  morning  of  Saturday,  November  29th,  1856. 
A  heavy  storm  had  arisen,  and,  in  the  darkness,  Captain  Sinclair,  misjudg- 
ing his  position,  turned  the  vessel  towards  the  city.  Discovering  his  mis- 
take, he  endeavored  to  turn  out  towards  the  lake  again,  but  a  heavy  sea 
drove  the  freighter  on  to  the  shelving  clay  in  rear  of  Privat's  Hotel,  not 
more  than  fifteen  yards  from  the  beach,  and  she  stuck  fast.  Her  deck  load 
was  completely  washed  off,  the  hold  filled  with  water,  and  it  was  with ' 
difficulty  that  the  crew  got  ashore.  On  the  Tuesday  and  Wednesday  fol- 
lowing a  violent  storm  broke  the  "Monarch's"  hull  in  three  places  and  all 
hope  of  saving  her  was  abandoned.  A  part  of  her  machinery  was  re- 
moved, but  the  cargo  was  almost  a  total  loss.  In  1862  Captain  Hugh 
Richardson,  then  Harbor  Master,  reported  that  the  breach  in  the  late 
peninsula  was  about  half  a  mile  wide,  and  that  the  old  line  of  the  beach

Proudfoot,  a  prominent  merchant  in  Toronto,  and  president  of  the  old  Bank 
of  Upper  Canada.  It  was  a  large  white  brick  residence,  always  noted  for

Proudfoot  presided  over  quite  an  extensive  fancy  fair,  which  was  held  in 
the  drawing-room,  a  magnificent  apartment,  seventy-five  feet  in  length  by

disposing  of  it  in  1869  to  Mr.  Donald  Mackay,  who  renamed  the  house 
"Dundonald."  During  the  latter's  occupancy  the  members  of  the  General

municipal  offices  and  Council  Chamber  were  in  use  as  such,  but  at  that 
date  Yorkville  was  incorporated  with  Toronto,  being  designated  as  St. 
Paul's  Ward.  From  1884  until  1907,  when  the  new  library  building  on 
Yorkville  avenue  was  completed,  the  Council  room  was  used  as  a  public 
library.  The  clock  in  the  tower  was  installed  in  1889.  Now  (1917)  the

Yonge  streets,  extending  from  King  to  Colborne,  and  from  Yonge  to  the 
site  of  the  King  Edward  Hotel.  On  part  of  this  property,  the  present  site 
of  the  hotel,  his  residence  and  wagon  shop  were  located.  Both 
buildings  were  of  frame.  Mr.  Bostwick  in  his  business  did  for  the 
farmers  of  Upper  Canada  what  in  later  years  the  Speight  Co.,  of  Markham,

dian Government  to  make  "a  reconnaissance  of  the  North-west  provinces 
and  Indian  territories  of  the  Dominion,"  and  in  the  following  year  a  bill 
was  introduced  in  the  Dominion  Parliament  by  Sir  John  A.  Macdonald, 
respecting  "the  administration  of  justice  and  the  establishment  of  a  police 
force  in  the  North-West  Territories."  Recruiting  for  the  North- West  Mounted 
Police  was  begun  in  the  autumn  of  1873,  and  in  1874,  with  Lieut.-Col. 
George  A.  French  commanding,  the  force  commenced  operations.  A  whole- 
some respect  for  these  "riders)  of  the  plains"  was  speedily  instilled  in  the 
minds  of  Indian  and  white  man,  and  the  force  became  a  power  for  law  and 


order  in  the  prairie  lands.  In  1904  the  title  "Royal"  was  conferred  upon

1059— TORONTO  ROLLING  MILLS,  1863-9— Between  East  (Cherry) 
street  and  Water  street,  prolonged,  at  intersection  on  the  south  side  of 
Mill  street.  They  were  built  and  managed  by  C.  S.  (afterwards  Sir

Macpherson,  R.  C.  Pomeroy,  of  Pittsfield,  Mass.,  and  Montreal  capitalists. 
The  mills  were  the  largest  manufacturing  industry  in  Toronto  in  their 
day,  and  the  largest  iron  mills  in  Canada.  Iron  rails  were  manufactured 
here  for  the  Grand  Trunk  Railway,  but  in  1869,  when  steel  rails  were  being 
imported  from  England,  the  company  concluded  that  they  could  not  com- 
pete, and,  rather  than  make  the  changes  in  the  plant  necessary  for  the 
production  of  steel  rails,  the  place  was  dismantled.  The  Rolling  Mills 
wharf  stood  on  the  south  side  of  the  present  (1917)  Esplanade  at  the  foot 
of  the  then  East  street,  bordering  on  the  north  bank  of  the  Don  River 
(previous  to  its  deviation  by  the  Corporation).  The  property  is  now  occu- 
pied by  the  Grand  Trunk  Railway  and  the  Standard  Fuel  Company,  a 
tenant  of  the  railway.  Pastel,  made  in  1864  by  William  Armstrong,  C.E.,

far  as  Muskoka  Bay.  The  following  summer  a  party  of  six  set  out  to 
explore  the  new  land,  and  for  a  time  camped  on  the  present  (1916)  site  of 
Port  Sandfield.  For  several  years  an  island  at  the  head  of  Lake  Joseph 
was  the  camping  spot.  In  time  a  group  of  islands  was  purchased  by  five 
of  those  who  had  visited  Muskoka  Lakes,  viz.,  Prof.  Geo.  Paxton  Young, 
William  H.  Rowland,  Montgomery  Cumning,  John  Campbell,  and  James 
Bain.  The  largest  island  was  called  Yohocucabah,  from  the  first  two  letters 
of  the  surnames,  the  "h"  being  added  to  give  an  Indian  pronunciation. 


Proving  rather  cumbersome,  the  name  soon  became  shortened  to  Yoho. 
Subsequently  the  islands  were  purchased  by  Prof.  Campbell,  whose 
hospitality  was  unbounded  and  is  remembered  by  many  who  had  the 
privilege  of  being  his  guests.  Two  of  the  five  islands  were  afterwards  sold 
by  Prof.  Campbell  to  W.  B.  McMurrich.  Photograph,  colored-  Size  6x6.

Niagara,  and,  after  a  running  fight,  captured  the  "Julia,"  the  first  schooner 
the  Americans  had  armed  for  the  war,  and  the  "Growler,"  each  of  80  tons, 
and  armed  with  four  guns.  They  had  been  separated  from  their  main 
body.  As  prize  ships  the  schooners  became  the  British  transports  "Con- 
fiance"  and  "Hamilton."  They  were,  however,  recaptured  off  the  Ducks,

In  the  summer  of  1610,  while  searching  for  the  North-west  Passage  to 
India,  Hudson  discovered  the  bay  which  bears  his  name.  Provisions  ran 
short,  and  his  crew,  fearing  that  he  would  persist  in  his  search  until  they 
all  perished,  mutinied  in  1611,  casting  him  and  -eight  others  adrift,  with 
hardly  any  arms  or  provisions,  in  the  shallop  towing  astern.  They  were 
never  found.  This  picture  is  based  on  details  supplied  by  the  replica  of 
Hudson's  preceding  ship,  the  "Half  Moon,"  in  which  he  discovered  the 
Hudson  River,  1609.  Water  color  on  pencil  sketch,  by  C.  H.  J.  Snider.
